Formula Grant Funds

OJJDP’s Formula Grants program supports state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Within the Formula Grants program purpose areas, states can provide job training, mental health and substance abuse treatment, community-based programs and services, reentry/aftercare services, and school programs to prevent truancy.

OJJDP provides funds directly to states to help them implement comprehensive juvenile justice plans based on the needs in their jurisdictions. To be eligible to receive a formula grant under JJDPA’s Title II, Part B, Formula Grants program, a state must (1) satisfy 33 statutory state plan requirements, (2) designate a state agency to prepare and administer the state’s comprehensive 3-year juvenile justice and delinquency prevention plan, (3) establish a State Advisory Group to provide policy direction and participate in the preparation and administration of the 3-year plan, and (4) commit to achieve and maintain compliance with the four core requirements of the JJDPA: deinstitutionalization of status offenders, separation of juveniles from adult inmates, removal of juveniles from adult jails and lockups, and addressing racial and ethnic disparities.
