This 2008-2009 report to Congress from the Office of Justice Programs presents an overview and analysis of performance data for the 2008 and 2009 reporting cycles; contains basic discussions of how States used their JABG funds during this period; contains a description of activities under the Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary Grants program; and presents details on the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP’s) support for the programs funded through the JABG program. The JABG program awards Federal formula and block grants to States, which pass 75 percent of the funds on to local governments, to implement accountability-based programs and services to improve and strengthen the juvenile justice systems.
