Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

The United States Department of Justice has supported CASA advocacy since 1985 through its Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). CASA programs enjoy broad, bipartisan support in the US Congress. Through the Victims of Child Abuse Act, Congress authorizes funding to increase the number of CASA volunteers available to victims of child abuse or neglect.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is a primary funder of the National CASA Association .

The majority of this funding is awarded to programs through a competitive grant process. Grants fund program development and expansion as well as inclusion and cultural competency efforts. Additional funds are dedicated to providing training and technical assistance and the National CASA annual training conference attended by more than 1,000 volunteers, CASA program staff, judges and other members of the child welfare community.
