Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $592,061)

The North Carolina State Advisory Board (the Juvenile Justice Planning Committee of the Governor's Crime Commission) is committed to serving the young people of North Carolina. In order to accomplish this, the Juvenile Justice Planning Committee plans to fund projects that incorporate accountability-based programming to provide training for detention personnel, to conduct risk and needs assessments, and provide restorative justice programming. Programs to be funded include teen courts, vocational programs, and juvenile mediation projects. All programs funded with JABG (Juvenile Accountability Block Grant) funds are special-conditioned to work with court-involved youth so as to ensure that the desired program population is being served. Progress towards goals is tracked through on-site monitoring and the examination of the reports that are regularly submitted through the online Juvenile Justice Reports system. North Carolina has requested a 92% waiver of local pass-through requirements for the JABG program for FY 2012. North Carolina's state government assumes most of the responsibility for funding the administration of the juvenile justice system, spending approximately 92% of the expenditures in each of the JABG program purpose areas.
