FY 23 Grant Awards - Supporting Youth

Advancing Community Safety and Justice

A developmentally appropriate juvenile justice system that treats children as children is critical to helping justice-involved youth succeed and avoid future system involvement. OJP is investing more than $177 million in FY 23 to reform state and local juvenile justice systems, expand youth violence prevention and intervention efforts, support mentoring programs and reentry services for young people and their families, meet the needs of vulnerable youth and study outcomes for justice-involved youth.
