Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $404,332)

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 2013 Plan Update for Juvenile Justice in Idaho engages public and private organizations and mobilizes citizens to address critical needs within communities statewide. The rural and frontier nature of Idaho provides a strong foundation upon which effective and lasting partnerships thrive. The State of Idaho intends to continue addressing issues regarding compliance with the core protections of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Act of 1974, as amended. This plan is part of a comprehensive approach developed by the Idaho Juvenile Justice Commission. The focus on compliance impacts, but does not eliminate, the overall priorities of the strategic plan including: Reintegration, Youth Voice, Restorative Justice Practices, DMC Assessment, and Core Protections of the Act.

Key investments will continue to support efforts to address disproportionate minority contact and new investments will be made to refine activities to monitor sight and sound separation, jail removal, and deinstitutionalization of status offenders.

Idaho will measure the impact of this plan using performance measures that track both process and outcomes. Sub-grantees report to the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections quarterly. Progress towards objectives is monitored by staff and programmatic modifications are initiated if necessary to achieve desired results. Statewide projects such as DMC and Compliance activities are tracked and analyzed by the Department.
