Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $600,000)

Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 5633(d), if a state fails to submit a plan or submits a plan that does not meet the requirements of the JJDP Act, the OJJDP Administrator shall endeavor to make the Formula Grants program fund allocation available to local public or private nonprofit agencies within the state. 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). By mutual agreement between OJP and the State of Arkansas, a portion of Arkansas’ previous Formula Grants Program allocation is being made available. Therefore, the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office proposes a comprehensive and coordinated community-based approach to eliminating and addressing the deinstitutionalization of status offenders (DSO), separation of juveniles from adult inmates (separation), and the disproportionate minority contact (DMC) of juveniles who come into contact with the juvenile justice system for youth ages 12–18 years.
