Changes to OJJDP's Juvenile Accountability Program
(NCJ 200220) June 2003
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 6 page(s)
Andrews, C., Marble, L.
 
Presents an overview of recent changes in OJJDP's juvenile accountability program. The Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants (JAIBG) program was introduced in 1998 to help states and communities strengthen their juvenile justice systems by implementing accountability-based reforms in 12 purpose areas. The Department of Justice Authorization Act for FY 2003 renames the program, expands its purpose areas, adjusts funding levels, and introduces new requirements and procedures. This Bulletin highlights the new Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) program provisions, which take effect in October 2003. It offers point-by-point comparisons with previous provisions and answers frequently asked questions.
