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.

Alabama's Formula Grant funds will be allocated to State, local, and private sector agencies to implement Purpose Areas 8, 10, 6, 23, and 31, focusing on jail compliance monitoring and minority overrepresentation in the juvenile justice system. To achieve this program's goals and objectives, State activities will include continuing (i) the State courts' improvement of its technology and data collection processes, and (ii) the monitoring of jail facilities to address issues of compliance with the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). Local activities will focus on programs designed to provide youth mentoring, parent and family assistance initiatives, truancy and dropout prevention, graduated sanctions available to the courts for adjudicated juveniles, and transitional residential placement for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.
