Title II Grant Program


The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) is the federal statute that establishes the Title II Grant Program. The U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) administers the grant, in part, by awarding grants to states to support delinquency prevention and juvenile justice system improvement.

The BSCC is the state agency that receives and administers California’s Title II award. The BSCC must competitively award funds to units of local government, nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations or Indian tribes consistent with the purpose and intent of the JJDPA and California’s Title II State Planopens PDF file .

OJJDP requires states that receive Title II awards to establish a State Advisory Group (SAG) to advise on Title II activities. California’s SAG, the State Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, a governor-appointed committee serving as a standing BSCC Executive Steering Committee that works on behalf of the Governor to support policy and programs that improve outcomes for young people in the justice system.

On November 14, 2019 the BSCC awarded approximately $12.4 million to 12 grantees for a 3-year grant period covering December 1, 2019 - November 30, 2022. The 12 grantees and associated funding award are provided below.
