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 OJJDP FY 2013 Title II Formula Grants Program in the State of Alabama is administered by Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. The State Advisory Group awards grants to local units of government, non-profits, and faith-based organizations to implement evidenced-based model programming intended to impact priority juvenile justice needs. Funds will be allocated to new projects and continuation projects that will address the following purpose areas:
- Compliance Monitoring
- Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders
- Disproportionate Minority Contact

Specifically, the State will focus their efforts on addressing jail compliance monitoring and minority overrepresentation in the justice system as the means to address the four core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA).

To achieve the program's goals and objectives, the State-level activities will focus on implementing system improvements designed to upgrade court technology and data collection methods for processing juvenile case information on a real-time basis, and on monitoring the State's jail facilities to ensure compliance with the core requirements of the JJDPA.

The local-level activities will focus on implementing prevention and intervention programs designed to provide youth mentoring, parent and family unity assistance, truancy and dropout prevention, graduated sanctions for the courts to use when adjudicating juveniles, and short-term transitional residential placement options for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.

The purpose of this program is to support state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements through a range of administration, compliance and program activities including those that address juvenile justice issues for Native American Indian tribes.

In Alabama, the OJJDP FY 2014 Title II Formula Grants Program is administered by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. Funds will be used to support local units of government, non-profits, and faith-based organizations to implement evidenced-based model programming intended to impact priority juvenile justice needs as outlined by the State Advisory Group (SAG) in the Alabama's 2012-2014 Three Year Comprehensive State Plan.

Specifically, the State will focus these efforts on addressing deinstitutionalization of status offenders as well as jail compliance monitoring and minority overrepresentation in the justice system as the means to address the four core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). To achieve this program's goals and objectives, the State-level activities will focus on: programs designed to reduce the disproportionality of minorities entering the system, monitoring the State's jail facilities to ensure compliance with the core requirements of the JJDPA and continuation of a highly successful community-based sex offender treatment program provided to 15-plus counties.

The local-level activities will focus on implementing programs designed to provide youth mentoring, parent and family unity assistance, pre-trial diversion, aftercare programs, and short-term transitional residential placement options for youth involved in the juvenile justice system. NCA/NCF
