Catalog of Federal Funding Sources for Youth in Juvenile Justice
This catalog of federal funding sources for youth with or at-risk of juvenile justice involvement presents information on 110 federal programs located in nine cabinet level departments and two independent agencies. These programs can be used to fund state and local initiatives for primary prevention, diversion, community supervision, placement (including detention, incarceration, institutionalization, and group care), as well as aftercare. The catalog is intended to help policy makers, program developers and managers, service providers, community leaders, advocates and researchers identify sources of funding for a wide array of state and local initiatives for youth ages 10 through 24. To facilitate this process, the catalog is indexed in seven broad domains: 1) health and well-being, 2) academic success, 3) youth development and engagement, 4) supportive families and communities, 5) accountability and fairness, 6) other supportive services, and 7) system-building and support . Within each domain, programs are further categorized to identify specific program purposes and activities that can be supported. Many of the federal programs described here have broad statements of purpose and can fund a variety of programs, supportive services, systems-building, research and data collection.
