Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Formula Grant Program
Document Number: 2016-18371
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-08-08
Agency: Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs
The Office of Justice Programs (``OJP'') proposes to update the implementing regulation for the Formula Grant Program authorized by Title II, Part B, of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 (``the Act'' or ``JJDPA''). The purpose of the Formula Grant Program is to provide formula grant awards to states to support juvenile delinquency prevention programs and to improve their juvenile justice systems. The proposed rule would supersede the existing Formula Grant Program regulations to reflect changes in the 2002 JJDPA reauthorization as well as policy changes to the Formula Grant Program.
