Program Description

Wyoming has chosen not to participate in the Formula Grants program under Title II, Part B of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act). As such, the state is ineligible to receive the FY 2014 Title II Formula Grants program allocation authorized under Sections 221-23 of the JJDP Act (42 U.S.C. Sections 5631-33). Accordingly, OJJDP will competitively award the state's allocation through the Nonparticipating State Program: Wyoming, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. Sec. 5633(d). The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) envisions a nation where our children are healthy, educated, and free from violence. If they come into contact with the juvenile justice system, the contact should be rare, fair, and beneficial to them. To support the OJJDP vision, applicants are encouraged to review the recommendations from the Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence, www.justice.gov/defendingchildhood/cev-rpt-full.pdf; the recommendations of the National Research Council's Reforming Juvenile Justice: A Developmental Approach, www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=14685; and the School Discipline Consensus Project, csgjusticecenter.org/youth/projects/school-discipline-consensus-project/. OJJDP also encourages applicants to consider program strategies that: ? reduce the gender bias within the juvenile justice system and promote trauma-informed, gender-responsive programs for girls, especially victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking; ? keep children in school and out of the juvenile justice system; ? provide well-trained and well- resourced juvenile defense counsel; and ? enhance diversion efforts and develop a continuum of community-based services.
