For FY 2003, the budget reduces the level of Title II Part C JJDP funding to $10,000,000, a reduction of $48,513,000.  The original purpose of this program, which was to give the Department discretionary funding for research and development activities to increase understanding of the risk factors for delinquency and the effects of alternative juvenile justice policies, has not been possible in recent years due to the level of earmarking within this program.  In 2002, 100 percent of the discretionary program was earmarked.
