White House Proposes Deep Cuts to Mentoring
The White House Budget has proposed a nearly 56% cut to the OJJDP Youth Mentoring Grant. It’s now up to Congress to determine funding for fiscal year 2021 (FY21) and they must decide at what level the only mentoring-specific federal grant will be funded.

Mentoring advocates can call on members of Congress to help close the mentoring gap by supporting funding the Youth Mentoring Grant at $120 million. The Youth Mentoring Grant, housed at the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is currently funded at $97 million, we are asking for a small increase so that more youth can have access to the critical supports we know they need. Take action now!
