Dear Chairman Obey and Ranking Member Lewis,

I am requesting funding in the FYIO Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, Department
of Justice, Office of Justice Programs- Juvenile Justice Account for the At-Risk Youth
Intervention Initiative. The entity to receive funding for this project is the City of Jacksonville at
117 West Duval Street Suite 400, Jacksonville, FL 32202. It is my understanding that the
funding would be used for the city's Jacksonville Journey's At-Risk Youth Intervention Initiative
that aims to reduce truancy, dropout rates, and assess juveniles when initially entering the
juvenile justice system.

I certify that this project does not have a direct and foreseeable effect on the pecuniary interests
of my spouse or me. I also certify that this request will be made publicly available on my
Official Website.

Consistent with the Republican Leadership's policy on earmarks, I hereby certify that to the best
of my knowledge this request: (1) is not directed to an entity or program that will be named after
a sitting Member of Congress; (2) is not intended to be used by an entity to secure funds for
other entities unless the use of funding is consistent with the specified purpose ofthe earmark;
and (3) meets or exceeds all statutory requirements for matching funds where applicable. I
further certify that should this request be included in the bill, I will place a statement in the
Congressional Record describing how the funds will be spent and justifying the use offederal
taxpayer funds.
