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 as found in section 223(a)(9) of the JJDP Act.

Title II Formula funds will be used to provide delinquency prevention programming to youth throughout Nevada and ensure compliance with the four core requirements of the JJDP Act, 2002. The Juvenile Justice Programs Office in conjunction with the Nevada Juvenile Justice Commission will provide funding, oversight and technical assistance to local probation departments, not-for-profit agencies and state correctional facilities in order to provide the much needed programming to youth involved or at risk of involvement in the juvenile justice system. All programming funded will use evidenced based curriculum and ensure compliance with the federal JJDP Act. Areas of focus include: aftercare/reentry, deinstitutionalization of status offenders, mental health and substance abuse services, and programming for Native American youth.
