This report discusses the use of funds provided by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act in California, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Texas. Objectives of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act are discussed and requirements for states to receive formula grants are reviewed. Observations from project visits are made as to whether: (1) states had either used funds or had firm plans for the money; (2) states funded programs in accordance with specific guidelines; and (3) projects operated as described in grant applications, used funds as budgeted, and did not maintain excessive cash balances. A state-by-state profile of projects is presented; recommendations and agency comments are also included. The appendix contains discussions of project title, sources and uses of funds, project objectives, and results and observations for each of the 80 projects reviewed. (NRB)
