Promoting the advancement of equitable, effective, and coordinated systems serving youth, families, and communities in the State of Utah.

The Utah Board of Juvenile Justice (UBJJ) serves as the State Advisory Group for the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) through the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). UBJJ establishes and maintains a comprehensive plan for Utah’s compliance with the core protections of the JJDPA, thus making Utah eligible for federal Title II grant funding. UBJJ allocates this funding annually, through a competative grant process, to eligible entites across Utah to support programs and services for juveniles involved with the juvenile justice system and juveniles at-risk of such involvement, as well as the parents/guardians and families.
