Report, 62 page(s)

The Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants (JAIBG) strategic planning guide describes the JAIBG program and provides practical advice and recommendations to States and local units of government eligible to receive JAIBG funds. In particular, the 52-page guide identifies the 12 program areas that JAIBG funds may be used to develop, lists program implementation activities, explains the role of juvenile crime enforcement coalitions in securing grants, and discusses principles for ensuring accountability in the juvenile justice systems. Beyond such specific application, the guide emphasizes the importance of strengthening results-based decisionmaking across State and community juvenile justice systems and identifies steps that States and localities may take in order to do so. Through summaries of several recent State and local juvenile justice initiatives, the guide effectively illustrates how the principles being discussed may be applied.
