The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974, as amended. The purpose of this program is to support state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Program areas may include: planning and administration; state advisory group allocation; compliance monitoring; disproportionate minority contact; juvenile justice issues for Native American Indian tribes; prevention of substance abuse by juveniles; prevention of serious and violent crimes by juveniles; prevention of juvenile gang involvement and illegal youth gang activities; prevention of delinquent acts and identification of youth at risk of delinquency; and improvement of juvenile justice system operations, policies, and procedures including establishing a system of graduated sanctions, treatment programs, and aftercare.

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) is the designated state agency responsible for the implementation of the Title II Formula Grants Program. The primary goals and objectives are to help at-risk youth and their families, to provide services for youth who come in contact with the juvenile justice system, and to achieve and maintain compliance with the four core requirements of the JJDP Act. Title II formula funds will be used to fund compliance monitoring activities; promote, develop and support effective re-entry strategies; conduct a formal DMC assessment; and provide continuation funding for a Domestic Battery pilot project.
