Title II Formula Grant

The Title II Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Formula Grant,  authorized by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), provides funding for the implementation of programs that support the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) ActGOYFF, the state agency designated to monitor compliance of the JJDP Act core requirements, collaborates with the Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission (AJJC) to fund programs that address significant challenges that youth, families, and professionals face within the juvenile justice system.

The compliance monitor audits all facilities that may detain juveniles pursuant to public authority (typically police departments and juvenile detention centers) to ensure they are complying with the requirements for detaining juveniles. This includes separating juveniles from adult inmates, not detaining status offenders in secure custody, and processing delinquent offenders within 6 hours in adult facilities (jails and police lockups). The state's compliance with the core requirements determines eligibility for the Title II Formula Grant award. The annual budget for Title II is approximately $1.1 million
