Congressional Affairs, Funding, and Legislation

In the Congressional Affairs section, we provide a wealth of information about the congressional appropriations process, legislation NCJA is monitoring, a toolkit for engaging with your congressional delegations, template letters for you and your stakeholders to use, and examples of past NCJA and grantee letters. We hope these resources will be helpful to you as you educate members of Congress, other policymakers, and your stakeholder community about the impact of the federal justice assistance programs in your communities.

In this section you will also find the Justice Assistance Table, which tracks funding for the state and local justice assistance, homeland security, and substance abuse treatment grant programs, and the Status of Pending Legislation chart, which tracks bills moving through Congress that impact state, local and tribal criminal justice policy. Organized by topic, the chart includes appropriations bills and legislation on general justice assistance, victims issues, juvenile delinquency and gang prevention, law enforcement, courts, sentencing and prison reform, corrections and reentry, and homeland security.

Justice Bulletin

NCJA's weekly online newsletter, Justice Bulletin, provides weekly coverage of issues and developments affecting state and local criminal justice and is provided as a membership benefit. The Justice Bulletin archive is organized in chronological order.

Promising Practices Series

The NCJA Promising Practices Series seeks to take a closer look behind promising practices from across the criminal justice arena. By examining not only how programs, technologies and initiatives were created but also how they have succeeded, we hope to provide readers with a more in-depth understanding of how communities are using innovation to address identified needs. The series is updated monthly and published every second week of the month in the Justice Bulletin.
