Crime Victims Fund Primer Available for Youth Justice Advocates

January 17, 2017

Crime Victims Fund

The National Juvenile Justice Network has released “The Crime Victims Fund: A Primer for Youth Justice Advocates.” This fact sheet is designed for youth justice advocates and explains how the federal Crime Victims Fund operates. The primer highlights new guidelines from the Office of Victims of Crime that expand allowable uses for these funds for services to meet the needs of underserved youth and families who are either in contact with the justice system or are at risk of court engagement.
