The purpose of the Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Control Act is to provide Federal funds to assist the States and localities in improving their services dealing with the juvenile delinquency problem. This would apply to the juvenile justice and juvenile aid systems including courts, correctional facilities, police agencies, and other agencies handling juveniles. The Act provides for funding of juvenile services for the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of delinquents, and for the prevention of delinquency. It also provides for comprehensive planning, development of improved techniques, information services, and technical assistance in the field of juvenile delinquency. The Act provides Federal funds for the development of a comprehensive plan relating to State and local needs in the juvenile area. It also allows for grants to any public or non-profit private agency for the cost of planning any project or program to be funded under the provisions of Title I rehabilitation and prevention programs. In either case, the grant may not exceed 90 percent of the cost. The act authorizes 25 million dollars for fiscal 1969, 50 million dollars for fiscal 1970, and 75 million dollars for fiscal 1971.
