Federal Title II Formula Grants

The federal Title II Formula Grant Program supports local efforts to plan, establish, operate, coordinate, and evaluate 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. Please click “Background Information” above for more information on the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2002 and the State Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (SACJJDP) oversight.

California’s SACJJDP has dedicated $2.7 million dollars annually over the next four years in federal Title II grant funds for the four priority areas identified in the State Plan: Aftercare/Reentry, Alternatives to Detention, Diversion, and Delinquency Prevention projects. Additionally, these grant projects are incorporating evidence-based practices and strategies (which seek to use effective correctional interventions and data-driven decision-making models) and R.E.D. (the reduction of the overrepresentation of youth of color coming into contact with the juvenile justice system).
