State Plans and SAGs
42 U.S.C. 5633, Sec. 223(a)(3). State Advisory Groups (SAGs) consist of 15 to 33 individuals appointed by the Governors/Chief Executives in each states, territory and D.C. who have training, expertise or special knowledge concerning the intervention, prevention and treatment of juvenile delinquency and the administration of juvenile justice.
What is the role and responsibility of a State Advisory Group?
42 U.S.C. 5633, Sec. 223(a)(3). SAGs are principally responsible for guiding the development, implementation and funding of the comprehensive Three-Year State Plan, and monitoring and supporting their state’s progress toward achieving compliance with and, more significantly, addressing the four core requirements of the JJDPA.
What are State Plans?
42 U.S.C. 5633, Sec. 223. In order to receive formula grants under the JJDPA, a state, territory or D.C. must submit a comprehensive Three-Year State Plan that details how the state is going to carry out the purposes of the JJDPA. These plans must be updated annually to include any new programs, projects or activities that the state has implemented. In addition, the state must submit an annual performance report that describes the progress it has made towards implementing the Three-Year State Plan.
