Notes

  1. The final budget agreement for FY 2003 reduced all discretionary programs by 0.65%, except where indicated.

  2. The FY 2004 budget includes an across the board reduction of 0.59% to all discretionary programs, projects, and activities-exempting Defense and Military Construction funds.

  3. This program is not affected by the FY 2003 across the board cut.

  4. This program exempt from FY 2004 across-the-board reduction.

  5. Because this is an entitlement program, its annual funding is automatically set at the level required to fund the services authorized for eligible persons. Statutory changes in eligibility or benefit levels, as well as changes in the number of eligible persons participating, affect federal outlays. New proposed legislation, if enacted, will impact this funding significantly.

  6. Requires a reauthorization. Currently, Congress has extended this funding in 3-month intervals. The current extension runs until March 31, 2004.

  7. Funding is included in the overall appropriations for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Injury Control and Prevention Center.

  8. Funds from this program are drawn from the overall appropriations for Section 8 low-income rental assistance.

  9. This program was authorized in the promoting Safe and Stable Families Amendments Act of 2001 (P.L. 107-33). These vouchers, worth up to $5,000 each, could be used by youth aging out of foster care for education and training.

  10. A portion ($26.4 million) of the state formula grants is reserved for states that have adopted (or will have in effect not later than one year after the date of application) policies and programs that ensure that juveniles are subject to accountability-based sanctions for every act for which they are adjudicated delinquent.

  11. The newly created Juvenile Delinquency Prevention Block Grant was authorized in the U.S. Department of Justice legislation signed into law on November 2, 2002 (P.L. 107-273). It replaces the Special Emphasis Prevention and Treatment Programs, Youth Gangs, Juvenile Justice State Challenge Activities, and Juvenile Mentoring.

  12. A portion ($61 million) of the Delinquency Prevention Grants is earmarked for tribal youth programs, gang prevention, underage drinking programs, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
