Title II, Title V and JABG

Title II State Formula Grants

Authorized by the JJDPA, Title II supports innovative state efforts to adhere to standards that reduce the risk of harm to court-involved youth, ensure fair treatment of minority youth, improve the way systems address delinquent behavior, and ensure citizen involvement and expertise through the State Advisory Groups (SAGs).

Title V Local Delinquency Prevention Program

Authorized by the JJDPA, Title V is the original, and still one of the only, federal programs specifically designed to prevent delinquency at the local level. To ensure a solid return on investment, the Title V program prioritizes the use of evidence-informed approaches, requires coordination with a statewide plan to ensure strategic use of resources and leverages the commitment and resources of state and local jurisdictions by requiring that the state and local applicant provide a 50% match.

The Juvenile Accountability Block Grant 

Authorized by the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act, the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) reduces juvenile offending by providing judges, probation officers, case managers, law enforcement, and other juvenile justice professionals a range of graduated sanctions for adjudicated youth - including cost-efficient confinement alternatives, for youth involved with the courts.
