But the Scottish government stopped funding the pounds 5million CIRV project in April this year and handed responsibility for it to Strathclyde Police.
Bosses at CIRV had hoped to refer youngsters to a partner scheme called Sidekix - an initiative to use football to keep youths away from crime.
A police spokeswoman said: "If this money had been granted, it would have allowed CIRV to refer clients to Sidekix.
But they admitted ongoing funding for CIRV was still being worked out.
We are now looking at sustainable ways of rolling CIRV out to all areas of Glasgow, and indeed other areas of Strathclyde.
