Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $300,000)
CJJ seeks to work in partnership with other participating entities to provide training and technical assistance to support States and Territories in their implementation of the Title II Part B Formula Grant program. In coordination with other providers, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) will offer States and Territories access to skilled, tailored, on-site and virtual support designed to strengthen their capacity to comply with the core protections afforded in the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act, administer their Formula Grant awards and subawards, and strengthen their individual juvenile justice systems.
As part of this work, CJJ will develop a peer resource guide for SAGs, with a focus on youth membership. CJJ will also support the development and implementation of peer resource guides on understanding the requirements of the Title II, Part B, Formula Grants Program, the racial and ethnic disparities core requirement, and strategies for effective monitoring for compliance with the core requirements.
