Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $380,000)

OJJDP's Nonparticipating state program makes the Formula Grants program fund allocation available to local public or private nonprofit agencies within the state. The recipient agency must use the funds to carry out activities that support compliance with the requirements of 34 U.S.C. §§ 11133(a) (11), (12), (13), and (22) (the “core” requirements).
The state of Wyoming has chosen not to participate in the Formula Grants Program, Title II, Part B of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP) Act. Therefore, the Volunteers of America (VOA) Northern Rockies proposes a comprehensive and coordinated approach to addressing juvenile delinquency prevention and system improvement efforts to reduce the disproportionate number of juvenile members of minority groups who come into contact with Wyoming’s juvenile justice system. VOA Northern Rockies will expand data collection and evaluation data in ten of the 23 counties. CA/NCF
