Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $109,876)

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 Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG) is committed to a vision for a juvenile justice system that promotes youth success and ensures public safety across the State. The JJAGs approach to allocation of federal funds will continue to be guided by the priorities identified in its FY2015 three-year plan: Narrowing penetration deeper into the juvenile justice system than necessary (through community-based diversion, successful probation adjustment and completion, reentry and other program services and efforts); Supporting the dissemination, quality implementation, sustainability and impact assessment of proven-effective and promising juvenile justice prevention and intervention programs and practice; Addressing the intersection of the education and juvenile justice systems; Reducing disproportionate minority contact, and Including the voices of people affected by the juvenile justice system (youth, families, and constituency groups such as minorities).
