OJJDP: $2 Million To Support Juvenile Justice Reform

By Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

In a new private-public partnership, OJJDP and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation are jointly providing $2 million to support innovative and effective reforms in treatment and services for youth involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.

"We need to do what's right for America's children," said Melodee Hanes, Acting Administrator of OJJDP.
