Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $539,862)

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 Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission (the Commission) is responsible for compliance with the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) and supports a seamless continuum of delinquency prevention, intervention, and accountability services.

To achieve these goals, Arizona plans to distribute their 2013 award across the following four program areas: deinstitutionalization of status offenders, mental health programs, juvenile justice system improvement and disproportionate minority contact. Compliance monitoring and serving rural and Native American communities will also continue to play a significant role in 2013 activities.
