Wyoming has chosen not to participate in the Formula Grants program under Title II, Part B of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act). As such, the state is ineligible to receive the FY 2014 Title II Formula Grants program allocation authorized under Sections 221-23 of the JJDP Act (42 U.S.C. Sections 5631-33). Accordingly, OJJDP will competitively award the state’s allocation through the Nonparticipating State Program: Wyoming, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. Sec. 5633(d). OJJDP encourages applicants to consider program strategies that reduce the gender bias within the juvenile justice system and promote trauma-informed, gender-responsive programs for girls, especially victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking, keep children in school and out of the juvenile justice system, provide well-trained and well- resourced juvenile defense counsel, and enhance diversion efforts and develop a continuum of community-based services.
