Specialized and Targeted Funding

The Budgeting and Program Development Unit of JJSD manages funding for the following specialized funding sources:

 

Title IV-E 

The Budgeting and Program Development Unit of JJSD manages funding to the juvenile probation departments through an Interagency Service Agreement (ISA) with the Department of Child Safety (DCS) related to federal Title IV-E funds.

 

Title IV-E funds assist juvenile probation departments in recovering a portion of the out-of-home placement costs and then using those funds within their juvenile probation system.

 

Juvenile Crime Reduction Fund (JCRF) Grants

The Budgeting and Program Development Unit of JJSD manages the application and funding process for the Juvenile Crime Reduction Fund. JCRF grants are provided annually to assist qualified organizations (courts, probation departments, tribes and governmental units) to reduce juvenile recidivism and youth penetration into the juvenile justice system.

 

The Budgeting and Program Development Unit collaborates with JJSD's other Units on all of their current initiatives and ongoing projects.
