The Nebraska Coalition for Juvenile Justice's existence is mandated through the state's participation in the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act as well as the Nebraska Juvenile Services Act. The Coalition makes recommendations to the Crime Commission on juvenile justice issues, oversees Nebraska's compliance with the JJDP Act and prepares annual reports on those activities for the Governor and Legislature. The Coalition also reviews and makes recommendations to the Crime Commission on the award of the federal JJDP Act subgrants, federal Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grant Program subgrants, State Juvenile Services Act grants and State Juvenile Services Planning grants. The Coalition is comprised of up to 33 members appointed by the Governor. To ensure youth representation, at least 20% of the Coalition's members must be less than 24 years of age at the time of appointment.
