Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act and the Youthful Offender Block Grant Program
Government Code Section 30061 and Welfare and Institutions Code Section 1961, as amended by AB 1998 (Ch. 880, Statutes of 2016), combined and establish the planning and reporting requirements under the Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA) and the Youthful Offender Block Grant (YOBG) programs.
- JJCPA Governing Statutes can be found in Government Code Sections 300061, et seq.
- YOBG Governing Statutes can be found in Welfare & Institutions Code Sections 1950, et seq.
The JJCPA program provides state funding for counties to implement programs that have proven effective in reducing crime and delinquency among at-risk youth and youthful offenders.
The YOBG program provides state funding for counties to deliver custody and care (i.e., appropriate rehabilitative and supervisory services) to youthful offenders who previously would have been committed to the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice.
Counties are invited to subscribe to the JJCPA-YOBG email list to receive program updates and reporting reminders.
