NDTAC Tip Sheet: Federal Resources and Initiatives for Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At Risk

Youth who are neglected or delinquent (N or D) have wide-ranging needs and are often served in programs funded by a number of intersecting Federal agencies and systems. Gaining awareness of these Federal efforts—and the data sources contained within them—can help promote collaboration, inform programming and policy changes, and strengthen coordination of services at the State and local levels. This tip sheet provides an overview of relevant Federal offices and programs as well as data sources that can be used to support State- and local-level decisionmaking and planning efforts. It also offers key questions that program administrators and practitioners can use to dig deeper into Federal datasets and initiatives.
