Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $453,920)

In 2012, Arizona will pass through 75% of its allocation to units of local government to support accountability-based programs. The Governor's Office for Children, Youth and Families (GOCYF) will also direct state retained funds (20%) to support programs and system improvement projects administered by state agencies responsible for juvenile offenders. In an effort to direct funds to best meet the needs of the juvenile justice system, local government will once again be provided the opportunity to select one of the seventeen program purpose areas. Agencies interested in applying for state retained funding will select a program purpose area in line with one of the following key priority areas chosen by the Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission in the winter 2011: Accountability, Training, Information Sharing and Risk & Needs Assessment. In addition to local activities supported by JABG funding, the Commission will utilize funds to: expand upon existing database capacities; define mechanisms for administering validated assessments; ensure that youth receive appropriate services and treatment to address emergent needs; support accountability-based and restorative justice programming for adjudicated youth committed to detention facilities; and provide training opportunities that will support programs and professional development.
