H.R. 1809 would authorize the appropriation of about $1.6 billion over the 2018-2022 period for the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to operate programs to reduce juvenile justice delinquency, assist runaway and homeless youths, and locate missing children. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1809 would cost about $1.1 billion over the 2018-2022 period, with the remaining $500 million being spent in years after 2022.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 1809 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 1809 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
