The Juvenile Justice Advisory Group, through the Maine Department of Corrections, supports programs for the improvement of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention.

Funds for this program are made available by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) through the Formula Grants Program.

The Formula Grants Program supports state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Through this program, OJJDP provides funds directly to states, territories, and the District of Columbia to help them implement comprehensive state juvenile justice plans based on detailed studies of needs in their jurisdictions.

The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2002 (42 U.S.C. 5601 et seq.) (Act).

Pursuant to Section 223(a)(21)(A) and (B) of the Act, states shall, to the extent practicable, give priority in funding to evidence-based programs and activities. The JJAG supports evidenced-based practices and programs.

Logic Model Training

This curriculum is designed to help JJAG grantees and other community-based organizations develop their own evaluation plans. The curriculum provides instruction on how to develop evaluation questions, outcomes (initial, intermediate, and long-term) and performance measures. It also provides guidance on what data to consider and when to collect it. The curriculum includes several templates that will assist the user in developing an evaluation plan. Lastly, the curriculum has several "Check-on-Learning" exercises that reinforce some of the concepts discussed in the various sessions.
