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 goal of the New York Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG) is to support an effective juvenile justice system in New York State by: promoting early diversion of appropriate youth from deep end system involvement; furthering successful juvenile reentry; disseminating best practices in juvenile justice; supporting data driven policy development and program analysis; and reducing disproportionate minority contact (DMC).

The JJAG has designated the following purpose areas to further those goals: 1 - Aftercare/Reentry; 6- Compliance Monitoring; 10- DMC; and 19 - Juvenile Justice System Improvement. This strategy seeks to match the system response to the risk level posed by the youth; reduce recidivism among youth returning from placement; and address disproportionate minority contact with the juvenile justice system. Activities will include risk and need assessment, alternatives to detention, reentry best practices, and training and technical assistance. Federal performance measures will be collected to measure attainment of project goals. Local pass-through will be at least 67%.
