Introduction

A local responsibility of the Juvenile Justice Commission is to allocate funds to programs and agencies that support the goals and vision of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP). Additionally, these community partners are responsible for improving community-based programs to assure that Nevada's youth receive the guidance and support that they deserve. The Juvenile Justice Commission allocates JJDP funds throughout Nevada. A summary of the core programs and funding activities, more information on any program or if you would like to submit a proposal for funding during the next round of reviews, please contact us.

  • To work toward the solution of service problems created by geographical imbalance of service availability.
