Adult & Juvenile Justice Assistance

The Office of Adult and Juvenile Justice Assistance (OAJJA) manages several state and federal grant programs--all designed to provide support to and assist in the improvement of the justice system. Programs range from juvenile justice funding to support priorities such as addressing the needs of low-risk but high-need juveniles or research and evaluation, to criminal justice funding that supports local law enforcement and other criminal justice entities. Funding is generally made available to local and state agencies (both governmental and non-governmental) through a grant-making process. OAJJA supports the Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Council and the Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Board. For specific questions and staff, Contact Us
