Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $140,827)

North Dakota is requesting a waiver of the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) program pass-through requirement of 75% to eligible units of local government. North Dakota intends to retain 75% of the Fiscal Year 2012 allocation at the state level, and pass through 25% to local government, consistent with previous funding allocations. The State portion of JABG funding will be used in Purpose Areas 2 and 14. This portion will be used in conjunction with other state and federal resources to address issues identified in North Dakota's Three-Year Plan. The crime analysis illustrates that North Dakota has a high rate of property crime. Therefore, a majority of the funding will be used to maintain a statewide Restorative Justice program, which has shown to be an effective intervention for property offenders. In addition, funds will be used to augment services at the state's single juvenile correctional facility and for community-based accountability programs. It is anticipated that local government will use their funding in Purpose Areas 11 and 14. The performance measures outlined for the specific purpose areas will be used to measure progress towards achieving the goals and objectives. NCA/NCF
