OJJDP awards Wisconsin DOJ annual Title II formula grant funds based on state compliance with the JJDPA.  Title II funding supports innovative state efforts to adhere to standards that reduce the risk of harm to court-involved youth, ensure fair treatment of minority youth, improve the way systems address delinquent behavior; and ensure citizen involvement and expertise through the GJJC.  Counties, tribes, and agencies apply for grant requests on a rolling basis to address racial and ethnic disparities, advance juvenile justice system improvements, and expand alternatives to detention. The grants are based on the following purpose areas:

  • Alternatives to Detention
