The primary purpose of the JJAC / JSMR program is to improve outcomes for children and youth within the juvenile justice system by increasing and strengthening community-based programs and services, expanding community-based alternatives to confinement, increasing diversion opportunities, and supporting positive youth development models. This funding correlates with the Children and Youth Division’s goals of increasing the well-being of Maryland’s children and youth by increasing trauma-informed care practices and addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
The federal Title II Formula (JJAC) / Juvenile State Match Requirement (JSMR) Grant Program provides funding to the State of Maryland to address juvenile delinquency through technical assistance, training, and effective programs for improving the juvenile justice system.
Awards will support the establishment, enhancement, and/or expansion of programs and strategies in support of one or more of the three (3) purpose areas described below:
