H.R. 5963 would authorize the appropriation of about $855 million over the 2018-2022 period, mostly for the Department of Justice to make grants to state, local, and tribal governments for programs aimed at reducing juvenile delinquency and improving the juvenile justice system.
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5963 would cost about $340 million over the 2017-2021 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts. The remaining $515 million would be spent after 2021. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because enacting it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
CBO estimates than enacting the legislation would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
H.R. 5963 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
