Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Formula Grant Program
On January 17, 2017, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (``OJJDP'') of the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (``OJP''), published a partial final rule to amend portions of the formula grant program (``Formula Grant Program'') regulation to reflect changes in OJJDP policy. That rule is scheduled to become effective February 16, 2017. In accordance with the memorandum of January 20, 2017, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled ``Regulatory Freeze Pending Review,'' this action hereby temporarily delays the effective date of the final rule entitled ``Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Formula Grant Program'' until March 21, 2017 (which is 60 days from January 20, 2017). This temporary delay will allow Department of Justice officials an opportunity to review any potential questions of fact, law and policy raised by this regulation, consistent with the Chief of Staff's memorandum of January 20, 2017.
