  Annotation: The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP) bimonthly newsletter presents notices of agency activities, recent publications, funding opportunities, and upcoming events. This issue also includes a special feature summarizing changes for OJJDP mandated by the Department of Justice reauthorization signed into law in November 2002.
  Abstract: Although the DOJ reauthorization mandates important changes that streamline the OJJDP's operations and bring a sharper focus to its role, it supports the established mission of the OJJDP. The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2002, which is part of the DOJ reauthorization, consolidates seven previously independent juvenile justice programs of the JJDP Act of 1974 into a single prevention block grant. The new JJDP Act further amends Title II by creating a new Part D that authorizes research, training, technical assistance, and information dissemination regarding juvenile justice matters. The Act also adds a new Part E, which authorizes awards of grants for developing, testing, and demonstrating new initiatives and programs for the prevention, control, and reduction of juvenile delinquency. In addition, the new JJDP Act reauthorizes the Title V Community Prevention Grants Program, expands its purpose areas, and creates a new reporting requirement on the effectiveness of funded programs. The DOJ reauthorization also revises the purpose areas, reporting and monitoring requirements, and other aspects of the Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants program, which will be called the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants program. This newsletter also provides information on the redesign of the Office of Justice Programs' Re-entry Web site, a videoconference on mentoring, upcoming events, a funding update, OJJDP publications, and a Town Hall Meeting that involved dialog between Federal and community leaders on youth substance abuse.
