In a renewed private public partnership, the Office of Justice Programs’Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation are jointly providing $ 2 million to advance juvenile justice reform.
“Every youth who enters the juvenile justice system deserves to be treated fairly and to receive the help he or she needs,” said OJJDP Administrator Robert L. Listenbee. “Together, our Office and the MacArthur Foundation are working with states and communities to build a better future for youth.”
OJJDP and the MacArthur Foundation will each provide two years of funding at $125,000 per year to four organizations:
- the Center for Children’s Law and Policy;
- the National Youth Screening and Assessment Project at the University of Massachusetts Medical School;
- the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice at Policy Research, Inc.;
- and the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice
to support innovative reforms in treatment and services for youth.
