The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) will educate and inform state legislatures as they review and reform juvenile justice systems and policy. Information, assistance, and training provided by NCSL will help state lawmakers strengthen their capacity to comply with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act core requirements, administer Formula Grant awards and subawards, and strengthen their individual juvenile justice systems.
