Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $470,909)

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 Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) is the designated State agency to receive Title II funds in the State of Maryland. In addition to Planning and Administration and State Advisory Group allocations, GOCCP will use Title II funds to support Program Area #10-Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC), Program Area #11-Diversion, and Program Area #17-Jail Removal. The State of Maryland will prioritize efforts to reduce minority overrepresentation in their juvenile justice system, reduce the number of jail removal core requirement violations and increase the use of community-based diversion programs. Maryland will continue its system reform efforts to improve the juvenile justice system and to create a seamless continuum of services and programs for youth. NCA/NCF
