Criminal Justice Program seeks stakeholder input

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

The CAPCOG Criminal Justice Program launched a digital survey and set two meetings to seek stakeholder input for developing the 2020 Criminal Justice Comprehensive Plan and determining the funding priorities for the ten-county region. The plan provides direction to CAPCOG’s Criminal Justice Advisory Committee that recommends projects to the Office of the Governor for the General Victim Assistance Program, Violence Against Women Justice and Training Program, Juvenile Justice Grant Program, and Justice Assistance Grant Program.

“Input from organizations working in these areas of expertise is invaluable and can help the region better allocate funding to programs that address regional needs while also maximizing the region’s funding opportunities,” said Chris Schreck, CAPCOG Planning and Economic Development director.

The survey available at will close Sept. 16, while the meetings will take place on Oct. 1 and 3 at CAPCOG’s office, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165 in Austin.

The 2020 Criminal Justice Plan Year process started in July this year with a series of three applicant roundtable discussions about the process and what applicants want to make applying easier. As a result, CAPCOG will equip grant applicants with more information about the grants and the regions’ priorities. It also will provide information about similar funding opportunities as well as access to examples of previous applications that successfully received state funding. Grant workshops will take place in January.
