(a) Sharing of funds with counties and other units of local government
Each State shall reserve not more than 15 percent of the amount of funds allocated in a fiscal year pursuant to section
13706 of this title for counties and units of local government to construct, develop, expand, modify, or improve jails and other correctional facilities.
(2) Factors for determination of amount
To determine the amount of funds to be reserved under this subsection, a State shall consider the burden placed on a county or unit of local government that results from the implementation of policies adopted by the State to carry out section
13704 of this title.
(b) Use of truth-in-sentencing and violent offender incarceration grants
Funds provided under section
13704 of this title may be applied to the cost of—
(1)altering existing correctional facilities to provide separate facilities for juveniles under the jurisdiction of an adult criminal court who are detained or are serving sentences in adult prisons or jails;
(2)providing correctional staff who are responsible for supervising juveniles who are detained or serving sentences under the jurisdiction of an adult criminal court with orientation and ongoing training regarding the unique needs of such offenders; and
(3)providing ombudsmen to monitor the treatment of juveniles who are detained or serving sentences under the jurisdiction of an adult criminal court in adult facilities, consistent with guidelines issued by the Assistant Attorney General.
(c) Funds for juvenile offenders
Notwithstanding any other provision of this part, if a State, or unit of local government located in a State that otherwise meets the requirements of section
13704 of this title, certifies to the Attorney General that exigent circumstances exist that require the State to expend funds to build or expand facilities to confine juvenile offenders other than juvenile offenders adjudicated delinquent for an act which, if committed by an adult, would be a part 1 violent crime, the State may use funds received under this part to build or expand juvenile correctional facilities or pretrial detention facilities for juvenile offenders.
(d) Private facilities
A State may use funds received under this part for the privatization of facilities to carry out the purposes of section
13702 of this title.
(e) “Part 1 violent crime” defined
For purposes of this part, “part 1 violent crime” means a part 1 violent crime as defined in section
13701(3) of this title, or a crime in a reasonably comparable class of serious violent crimes as approved by the Attorney General.
 So in original. Probably should be section “13701(2)”.

L. 107–273substituted “Use of truth-in-sentencing and violent offender incarceration grants” for “Additional requirements” in heading and amended text generally, substituting provisions relating to use of funds for juveniles in adult prisons or under the jurisdiction of an adult criminal court for provisions relating to additional requirements for grant eligibility.
