CJAC reviews Criminal Justice grants

Thursday, March 05, 2015

Area agencies that submitted grant applications for the Office of the Governor’s Division of Criminal Justice grants will need to attend an appointed time during one of two CAPCOG Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC) meetings on March 31 or April 1.

The 17-member CJAC, consisting of representatives from every county in CAPCOG’s 10-county region, will discuss scoring criteria for grant applications based on the Regional Strategic Criminal Justice Plan on March 27. Applicants will then present information about their proposed grant projects on either March 31 or April 1. CJAC will review and score the projects based on applications and presentations, before it submits recommendations to the CAPCOG Executive Committee. The Executive Committee will make a final review and submit the region’s recommendations to the Office of the Governor.

CAPCOG will contact all agencies that submitted applications and schedule their appointments to present to the CJAC after the Office of the Governor has released a completed list of applicants.

The review will take place for the General Victim Assistance - Direct Services Programs, Violent Crimes Against Women Criminal Justice and Training Projects, Juvenile Service Projects – Local, Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Programs grants. The Office of the Governor stopped accepting applications Feb. 27, 2015.
