Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $948,203)
The Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission (AJJC) and the Arizona Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) are committed to continuing collaboration and coordination efforts within Arizona’s juvenile justice system. The overall intent of the AJJC is to uphold the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) and support a seamless continuum of delinquency prevention, intervention, and accountability services. GOYFF directs available state and federal resources to respond appropriately and effectively to the needs of at-risk and delinquent youth and their families while promoting public safety.
To achieve these goals, the GOYFF, in partnership with the AJJC, will distribute the 2022 award across several program areas, including delinquency prevention, community-based programming, tribal programs, and compliance monitoring. The state will also continue to support monitoring of the progress towards achieving the goals described in the 3-Year Plan.
The state of Arizona remains unwavering in its duty to uphold the core principles of the JJDP Act. Through thoughtful and calculated efforts outlined in the 3-Year Plan, the state will continue its work to facilitate and support positive outcomes for youth, families, and communities.
