November 2019 UPDATE: Urge Lawmakers to Adopt House Levels for JJDPA!

Congress is still working to set government spending levels for fiscal year 2020, through the appropriations process. The U.S. House of Representatives has completed its appropriations bills, and the Senate is working on its version. Please take a minute to write and urge your Senators and Representative to fund the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act to House levels. States need these funds to improve justice approaches, protect youth and promote safer communities.
