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 Office of Justice Grants Administration (JGA) is the District of Columbia's State Administering Agency (SAA) for the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Grant Programs (OJJDP). JGA in collaboration with the Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG), the State Advisory Group (SAG) as required by the OJJDP Act, requests $400,000 to focus on the following Title II Formula Grants Purpose Areas in the District: (6) Compliance Monitoring; (9) Delinquency Prevention; (10) Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC); (23) Planning and Administration (SAA/JGA allocation); (27) School Programs/Truancy Prevention; and (31) State Advisory Group allocation in the District i.e., Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG) in DC.

The District of Columbia (District) is considered a waiver-eligible jurisdiction in the absence of local units of governments. A portion of the program funds will be utilized to prioritize compliance with the core requirements of the JJDP Act by funding a Compliance Monitor position at the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC). Remaining funds will be used to focus on District wide services to address (9) Delinquency Prevention, and (27) School Programs/Truancy Prevention purpose areas. JGA will sub-award $330,000 to eligible organizations District-wide, and retain $70,000 for Planning and Administration, and SAG allocation. In addition, JGA will use a portion of these funds towards an evaluator to effectively measure the success of the awarded organizations.
In response to the FY 2013 Title II Program solicitation, JGA in partnership with stakeholders will develop and strengthen preventive services designed to reduce the number of youth entering the juvenile justice system. Funds will be used to support best practices efforts targeted to prevent delinquency and reduce truancy. JGA will submit performance measurements as required by the Data Collection and Technical Assistance Tool (DCTAT).
