METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $300,000 in each FY 2020 and FY 2021 to the Department of Health and Human Services for distribution to municipalities, counties, and non-governmental organizations maintaining juvenile diversion programs.

 

The Department states that general funds used for this purpose may result in a reduction in federal matching funds, as these services, unlike others provided by the Division for Children, Youth, and Families, are not eligible for a federal match.

 

There will be indeterminable increase in revenue and expenditures for counties and localities to the extent the Department determines how to distribute the general fund appropriation to eligible entities.
