115th Congress

Juvenile Justice Appropriations

Juvenile justice appropriations continue to be an important issue in the 115th Congress. In 2015, during the 114th Congress, House lawmakers threatened to zero out juvenile justice appropriations. As we head in to the FY'18 appropriations process we are closely monitoring the status of funding for vital juvenile justice programs.

Funding for Title II programs enables states to offer:

  • Prevention programs for at-risk youth
  • Law enforcement and judicial training
  • Evidence-based interventions for young people
  • Keeping kids out of adults jails and lockups
  • Keeping kids out of jail for non-criminal offenses
