CAPCOG offers two Criminal Justice Division grant workshops

Thursday, January 15, 2015

The Capital Area Council of Governments Regional Service Division will conduct two mandatory workshops for the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) grants in February.

Both mandatory workshops will focus on writing applications for the General Victim Assistance, Violent Crimes Against Women, General Juvenile Justice and Justice Assistance Grants. Those in attendance will be provided instructions on how to complete grant applications, how applications will be scored, and changes to the Capital Area Regional Strategic Criminal Justice Plan.

> Read the Regional Strategic Criminal Justice Plan.

Organizations seeking any of the four criminal justice grants must attend one of the workshops. The CJD will deem grant applications ineligible if the submitting organization failed to attend one of the mandatory workshops.

Workshop No. I: 1-4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015 at the J.B. Hallie Jester Building located at 1801 Old Settlers Blvd., Round Rock, TX 78664 in the Harrell Room. Please note the seating capacity is 200.

Workshop No. II: 1-4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb.  10, 2015 at the CAPCOG offices located at 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165, Austin, TX 78744 in the Pecan Room.  Please note the seating capacity is 50.

CAPCOG facilitates the criminal justice grants solicitation and ranking and scoring of applications for the state 2016 funding year through an interlocal agreement with the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division. CAPCOG is assisted with the process by its Criminal Justice Advisory Committee.

The state posted the request for applications on Dec. 12, 2014, which is open until Feb. 27, 2015, when all applicants must have uploaded their applications to the CJD E-grants website.
