Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Funding Availability Announcement

May 29 Application Deadline

May 1, 2015
The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) recently announced a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) funding availability for FY 2015-16.
The JABG program, administered at the federal level by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, supports state and local efforts to reduce juvenile crime through programs that focus on offender accountability and strengthen the juvenile justice system, working with community partners to keep youth from reoffending.
As the designated state agency for this federally funded program, BSCC distributes the federal annual allocations to local jurisdictions meeting the federal funding threshold to receive a direct allocation.
It should be noted that although the JABG program was not funded at the federal level in FY 2015-16, the BSCC has a reserve of JABG funding from previous years allocations that have not been dispersed. This will allow the 23 local jurisdictions that meet the FY 2013-14 threshold for receiving a direct allocation to be funded by the BSCC for the project period of July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. Continued funding for future year direct allocations will be dependent upon the outcome of federal appropriations.
Please see the attached NOFA and the FY 2015-16 application packet.
Applications due by 5 p.m. on May 29.
