Organizational Note

The Interdepartmental Council to Coordinate all Federal Juvenile Delinquency Programs was established by the June 30, 1971 amendments to the Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Control Act of 1968. The Council coordinated all Federal juvenile delinquency programs and reviewed efforts by the national government to combat juvenile delinquency. The Council consisted of the Attorney General (who, by presidential directive, served as chair), the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, and the representatives of agencies designated by the President. On July 30, 1971, President Nixon designated the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Labor, Transportation, Agriculture, and Interior, the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Economic Opportunity, and the Special Action Office for Drug Abuse Prevention to be represented on the Council.
