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.

California's Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) focuses on supporting counties in serving at-risk and system-involved youth and blends State and Federal funding streams to provide both direct services and systems improvement/reform. California's State Advisory Group (SACJJDP) serves as a Standing Executive Steering Committee of the BSCC. The SACJJDP is tasked with review of juvenile crime statistics, identification of trends within the continuum, and development of best practices and relevant policy in making regular recommendations to the BSCC. The SACJJDP has been directing its efforts toward: Reduced reliance on juvenile confinement; Increased use of evidence-based practices and interventions; and Addressing disparities in the decision-making processes within the juvenile justice system that impact youth of color. The 2012-2014 Three-Year Plan will continue to support three focus areas: Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC), Evidence-Based Practices(EBP) and a strategy to develop and strengthen services, programs, and policies that promote positive outcomes for youth, their families, and communities.

The California Board of State and Community Corrections in conjunction with the State's Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (SACJJDP) will use FY 14 Formula funds to serve at-risk and system-involved youth through both direct services and systems improvement/reform. The SACJJDP will continue its work to transform juvenile justice toward: (1) reduced reliance on juvenile confinement; (2) increased use of evidence-based practices and interventions; and (3) reducing disparities in the decision-making processes that impact youth of color and have resulted in disproportionate minority contact. The state's 3-Year Plan will continue to support these three focus areas with subgrants aimed at several goals: Reducing the number of youth held in secure detention; improving the quality of delinquency representation through the public defense system; enhancing services for Californias Native American youth; and supporting victims, returning offenders to law-abiding lives; and repairing harm through restorative justice services and approaches.
