Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $305,887)

The Juvenile Accountability Block Grant Program (JABG) in the State of Oklahoma exists for the purpose of addressing the state's priority juvenile justice accountability needs, as identified through statistical data. The waiver of the pass-through requirement to units of local government is based upon demonstrated juvenile justice expenditures of 83% at the state level. The State Advisory Board approves JABG purpose areas for funding of local units of government, to implement evidence-based programming, with the intent to reduce re-offending. Purpose areas funded for statewide and local units of government are: 1 - Local graduated sanctions programs; 6 - Training court personnel in evidence- based practices; and 12 - Risk and needs assessments for effective treatment of adjudicated youth. JABG funding is utilized to increase the number of youth served by graduated sanctions, reduce recidivism, increase the use of assessments, and the number of court personnel trained to use evidence-based practices. Data to measure progress towards these goals will be gathered via quarterly reports required of grantees, the statewide juvenile online tracking system, and annual reporting data gathered for submission into the federal DCTAT reporting tool.
