CAPCOG sets criminal justice grant workshops

Thursday, December 14, 2017

The Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division released the Plan Year 2019 requests for applications for four grants that CAPCOG and its Criminal Justice Advisory Committee provides funding recommendations. CAPCOG has scheduled two mandatory workshops on Jan. 10 and Jan. 11 to inform organizations about the application and review process. Each workshop will review the grants’ eligibility and requirements and discuss priorities and the region’s strategic plan created from community stakeholders’ input.

These grant programs allow local organizations to purchase needed equipment and technology upgrades, implement evidence based programs to address community identified problems, and serve community members while they recover from crimes. They include the General Victim Assistance Program, the Violence Against Women Justice and Training Program, the Juvenile Justice Grant Program, and the Justice Assistance Grant Program. CAPCOG has not received an estimated allocation for the region, but it anticipates allocations to be within 10 percent of the Plan Year 2018’s budget estimate — $7.2 million, $385,851, $430,979 and $462,612, respectively. CAPCOG received 50 applications in Plan Year 2018 of which 41 grants received $12.8 million in funding from the Governor’s Office, which distributes funding and administers the grants.

Organizations seeking to apply must have at least one representative attend a CAPCOG workshop. Applicants should also review the CAPCOG Criminal Justice Strategic Plan, Criminal Justice Funding Priorities and the Governor’s request for applications.
