Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $425,679)

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 OJJDP FY 2013 Title II Formula Grants Program in the State of Louisiana is administered by Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement (LCLE). The State Advisory Group awards grants to local units of government, non-profits, and faith-based organizations to implement evidenced-based model programming intended to impact priority juvenile justice needs. The purpose of this project is to continue to support the state and local projects as outlined by the SAG in the State of Louisiana 2012-2014 Three Year Comprehensive State Plan.

The goals and objectives of funding are to come into compliance with Section 223(a)(22) [Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC)] of the JJDP Act and to increase the availability and types of prevention, intervention programs and juvenile justice system improvements, and to achieve and maintain compliance with the four core requirements of the JJDP Act.

Each funded project must submit the OJJDP performance measurements via a quarterly progress and a final progress report, which includes their short-term and long-term outcomes to LCLE. LCLE compiles each sub-recipient's progress reports and submit the results in the Annual Performance Report to OJJDP via the GMS system.

Along with the submission of the annual report, on-site monitoring visits and/or desk audits are conducted to ensure goals and objectives are being met and to provide any needed technical assistance. Each sub-recipient's performance in meeting its goals and objectives help determine future funding.
