OJJDP Administrator Caren Harp's 2019 End of Year Message
OJJDP Administrator Caren Harp highlights OJJDP's fiscal year (FY) 2019 priorities, activities, and funding in this end of year video message from the November/December 2019 issue of OJJDP News @ a Glance. In FY 2019, OJJDP awarded more than $320 million in approximately 300 grant awards to protect children and communities, hold youth appropriately accountable for delinquent conduct, and help them develop the life skills they need to build a successful future. We also celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act and we saw the passage of the Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2018 which reauthorized the original Act and continues the work of OJJDP. Administrator Harp also looks forward to priorities for 2020.
