The State Incentive Program was created to provide judges with additional dispositional options that will help them craft the most appropriate disposition for each juvenile that is consistent with serving public safety, ensuring offender accountability, and providing to juveniles opportunities for personal growth and skill development through rehabilitative efforts. Its funding will be provided solely for appropriate youth who, if not for the State Incentive Program funding, would be committed to or placed residentially as a condition of probation with the Juvenile Justice Commission. This funding will be distributed on a competitive basis to Counties who have been identified as having a potential pool of youth to be served. Incentives will be offered to Counties and/or providers for participation in this program. Counties will receive funds through grants to their County Youth Services Commissions.

On December 11, 1998, at the New Jersey Law Enforcement Summit, it was announced that a new state-funded grant program would be administered by the Division of Criminal Justice. Funding made available under this new grant program will assist county prosecutors and the Division of State Police to strengthen the collaborative partnerships between the law enforcement community and other key community players and to help improve the quality of life in neighborhoods across the state. In light of the fact that each of New Jersey's counties are diverse and distinct in nature, the design of the Community Justice programs are tailored to meet individual needs.
