Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $559,236)

The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act and funds are made available as a result of the FY 2016 Department of Justice appropriations. 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; prevention; and activities to address the core requirements and improvement of juvenile justice system operations and policies, as found in section 223(a)(9) of the JJDP Act.

For FY16, the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs Law Enforcement and Traffic and Safety Division (LETS) will administer Title II funds and support the following priority purpose areas: Aftercare (1); School Programs (17); Disproportionate Minority Contact (21); and Compliance Monitoring (19). These priority areas will build on existing and coordinated efforts with the local Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), a Juvenile Justice Task Forces, and a newly established Children's Cabinet. More specifically, grant funds will support implementation of truancy reduction programming and evidence-based after care programs and ensuring compliance with the four core requirements of Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders, Sight and Sound Separation, Jail Removal and reduction of Disproportionate Minority Contact.
