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.

Alaska’s 2016 Formula Grants Plan Update is overseen by the Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) within the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS). Alaska’s DJJ reaffirms its commitment to four priorities: maintain full compliance with the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act; reduce overall youth recidivism rates, specifically targeting recidivism rates for Alaska Native youth; promote safe and responsible individuals, families and communities by increasing the number of juveniles who remain crime free; and enhance Alaska’s juvenile justice system through coordinated system improvement efforts. The Alaska DJJ will address these priorities through activities in the following Title II Program areas: (6) Delinquency Prevention; (19) Compliance Monitoring; (20) Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders (DSO); (21) Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC); (24) Indian Tribal Programs; (26) Jail Removal; (27) Juvenile Justice System Improvement; and, (31) Separation of Juveniles from Adult Inmates.
