Abstract: From federal fiscal year 1998 through 2006, Indiana received over $28 million in Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) awards, allocated by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) is responsible for administering the state’s JABG program. JABG funding supports states and communities address the problem of juvenile crime and strengthen juvenile justice systems. The program’s overall goal is to reduce juvenile offending through accountability-based approaches focused on both offenders and state and local juvenile justice systems. This report summarizes the findings of six case studies of JABG programs administered by ICJI. The program assessments are based on a detailed examination of a number of sources of information: (a) subgrantees’ original proposals; (b) continuation applications; (c) information provided by ICJI in the form of award control spreadsheets that include legal applicant and implementing agency names, project title, award amounts, county served, and grant numbers; and (d) all quarterly financial and progress reports submitted by JABG subgrantees in 2005 and 2006 to ICJI.
