BSCC Juvenile Committee Seeks Input on Future Strategies


Public Comment for Title II Spending Priorities

The State Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (SACJJDP) wants your help as it prepares to develop its three-year state plan strategies for delinquency prevention and juvenile justice improvement. This plan is a roadmap for policies that will direct spending under a federal grant program called Title II. To get there we must understand what communities across California believe are the most important and effective interventions to help our at-risk young people succeed.

Title II funds can be used for efforts such as:

  • Community youth services such as mentoring, gender specific services, and after school programs for at-risk youth.
  • Reducing racial and ethnic disparities
  • Diversion
  • Employment
  • Mentoring
  • Mental Health Treatment
  • Reentry Services

Title II Formula Grants and the SACJJDP

The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 as amended at 42 U.S.C. Sections 5631-5633 (Public Law 93-415) is awarded to California by the Federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). This act was reauthorized in December 2018. OJJDP requires states that receive Title II awards to establish a State Advisory Group to advise on Title II activities. In California, this is the SACJJDP. The SACJJDP is a governor-appointed committee serving as a standing BSCC Executive Steering Committee that works on behalf of the Governor to support policy and programs that improve outcomes for young people in the justice system. States are also required to complete and annually.
