CAPCOG hosts Criminal Justice grant workshops

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) is accepting applications from governmental and nonprofit organizations for four grant programs which anticipate distributing $8.5 million in the ten-county CAPCOG region during the 2018 fiscal year to improve victim services, reduce crime and increase public safety. Entities seeking 2018 funds must apply to the appropriate program by 5 p.m., Feb. 20, 2017.

They also must attend one of two grant writing workshops held by CAPCOG from 9 a.m. to noon Jan. 12 and 13 at 6800 Burleson Road Building 310, Suite 165 in Austin. Each workshop will cover who is eligible to apply, eligible activities, application requirements, funding periods, regulations, certifications and other rules for the following CJD funding sources:

General Victim Assistance - Direct Services, about $7.2 million is available

Violent Crimes Against Women Criminal Justice and Training Projects, $385,851 is available

Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, $430,979 is available

Justice Assistance Grant, $462,612 is available

> Register for the Jan. 12 workshop.
> Register for the Jan. 13 workshop.

Each year, CAPCOG works with regional stakeholders to develop or update a criminal justice strategic plan and funding priorities. Because of this planning, applications received, and CJD fund allocations developed in 2016, organizations in the region will receive about $3.4 million during FY 2017.

After the CJD deadline, CAPCOG’s Criminal Justice Advisory Committee will conduct applicant scoring and prioritization meetings, scheduled for March 29 and 30.
