Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $311,196)

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, establishing, operating, coordinating, and evaluating projects directly or through grants and contracts with public and private agencies for the development of more effective education, training, research, prevention, diversion, treatment, and rehabilitation programs in the area of juvenile delinquency and programs to improve the juvenile justice system as found in section 221 of the JJDP Act.

The Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections (IDJC) is the designated state planning agency for supervising the development of the Title II Formula Grant Program three year plan. IDJC’s plan is designed to enhance the juvenile justice system by focusing on youth ages 10 – 17 that come into contact with the juvenile justice system. The FY 2020 Title II Grant Formula Grant program funds will be used to support the following priorities: compliance monitoring, deinstitutionalization of status offenders, disproportionate minority contact, Indian tribe programs, and juvenile justice system improvement. Idaho is not in compliance with Section 223 (a)(11) of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (the deinstitutionalization of status offenders or DSO requirement); and will obligate 50 percent of the Title II funds to come into compliance with the requirement.
