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).
