Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $380,000)

Wyoming has chosen not to participate in the Formula Grants program under Title II, Part B of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended (JJDP Act). As such, the state is ineligible to receive the FY 2012 Title II Formula Grants program allocation authorized under Sections 221-3 of the JJDP Act (42 U.S.C. Sections 5631-3). Accordingly, OJJDP will competitively award the state's allocation through the Nonparticipating State Program: Wyoming, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. Sec. 5633(d).

Volunteers of America Northern Rockies (VOA) will assist Wyoming to come into compliance with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 (JJDPA). Wyoming is currently the only state that choses not to participate with the JJDPA formula grants program and the state is out of compliance with three of the four core requirements of the JJDPA. This grant will support the efforts of individuals around Wyoming who are committed to finding alternatives to secure detention for juvenile offenders. CA/NCF
