The State/Community Partnership program supports sanctions and services for juveniles adjudicated or charged delinquent and programs aimed at the prevention of juvenile delinquency, through grants to County Youth Services Commissions. In addition, the Partnership programs' goals also are to increase the range of sanctions for juveniles adjudicated delinquent; reduce overcrowding in state juvenile institutions and other facilities to ensure adequate bed space for serious, violent and repetitive offenders; reduce overcrowding in county detention facilities; provide greater access to community-based sanctions and services for minority and female offenders; expand programs designed to prevent juvenile delinquency; and promote public safety by reducing recidivism. Each county receives funds for program management and for program services. These funds are determined by a formula allocation. Applications are reviewed and scored by Juvenile Justice Commission staff.
