The State will focus its efforts on maintaining compliance with the four core mandates of the JJDPA Act; reduce overall youth recidivism rates, specifically for Alaska Native youth; promote safe and responsible individuals, families and communities; and enhance Alaska’s juvenile justice system through coordinated system improvement efforts. To achieve this program’s goals, Alaska will fund the following programs: delinquency prevention; compliance monitoring; DSO, separation, jail removal, DMC, Native American Tribes; and juvenile justice system improvements.
