  Abstract: Even with the juvenile arrest rate for violent crime at its lowest since around 1980, most States continue to struggle daily with a multitude of juvenile justice problems. An emphasis is placed on the need for the Nation to reinvigorate leadership, advocacy, and Federal funding for juvenile justice and delinquency prevention programs. Tribal communities are also struggling to deal with delinquency and crime among American Indian and Alaska Native youth. National attention must be shifted back to juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) has developed 10 recommendations, presenting them to the President of the United States and the U.S. Congress, focusing on the need for sufficient funding of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) programs, the detrimental effects of earmarking Federal funds, and the need to amend the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act in order for it to operate more effectively and efficiently. The FACJJ is an advisory body established by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974. Its role is to advise the President and Congress on matters related to juvenile justice and delinquency prevention, to advise the OJJDP Administrator on the work of OJJDP, and to evaluate the progress and accomplishments of juvenile justice activities and projects. FACJJ is mandated to prepare two annual reports. This report is the second annual report which outlines critical concerns and issues recognized by FACJJ members in 2005 and presents recommendations regarding Federal funding of juvenile justice and related education programs.
