Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $400,290)

The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act. The purpose of this program is to support state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Supported activities and efforts 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) of the JJDP Act.

The State of Alaska’s Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is the division within the Department of Health and Social Services that is responsible for all probation, detention, and institutional treatment services for delinquent youth in Alaska. DJJ is the state planning agency that is responsible for administration of grants from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The priority goals for Alaska’s Title II Formula Grant are: maintain compliance with the four core mandates of the JJDP Act; promote safe and responsible individuals, families and communities by increasing the number of juveniles who remain crime free; reduce overall youth recidivism rates, specifically targeting recidivism rates for Alaska Native youth; and enhance Alaska’s juvenile justice system through coordinated system improvement efforts.
