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 Mississippi Division of Public Safety Planning, Office of Justice Programs’ primary focus is to address the core requirements: deinstitutionalization of status offenders, separation of juveniles from adults in institutions, removal of juveniles from adult jails and lockups, disproportionate minority contact, and alternatives to detention and diversion. Title II funds will be used to develop a system of care for juvenile justice which allows for juveniles to receive appropriate services at every level. The goal is to provide uniform services which allow for an improved juvenile justice system of efficiency and effectiveness throughout the state of Mississippi. NCA/NCF
