The Nation : Freeze on Youth Aid Told

December 19, 1985

The Justice Department has frozen spending for juvenile justice projects because it expects the Office of Management and Budget to ask Congress next month to phase out the programs, sources said. The government sources said that officials overseeing the department's juvenile justice programs were told Friday not to sign for any more grants to the states, which provide money for runaway shelters and other projects to help delinquent juveniles. The Administration has long sought to eliminate federal programs, such as those for juvenile justice, that it believes are either too expensive for the government or can be handled better by the states or private enterprise.
