The Youth division administers federal funds under Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act overseen by Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and state funds under IN House Bill 1359. These funding streams are reliant on Indiana staying in compliance based on core requirements.

Without collaborative efforts, Indiana would not stay complaint and would lose the opportunity to create programs that assist our youth in areas of diversion, community alternatives, preventative procedures, and behavioral health needs.
