Department: Grants Department  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider rescinding January 18, 2012 resolution and approving the execution of a resolution authorizing the submission of grant application to the Governor's Criminal Justice Division for the Juvenile Drug Court program.
BACKGROUND
The Criminal Justice Division of the Governor’s Office is soliciting applications for projects that promote greater accountability in the juvenile justice system. The purpose of the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant program is to reduce juvenile offending through accountability-based programs focused on the juvenile offender and the juvenile justice system.

The project submitted must specifically address juvenile drug courts. The purpose of the County’s grant program is to provide support for juvenile drug court services and to assist in drug treatment services in the processing of cases in the judicial system.
DISCUSSION
On January 18, 2012, the Commissioners Court approved a resolution authorizing the submission of the grant application for the Juvenile Drug Court. However, recently, the Governor’s Office contacted the Juvenile Department to request an addition to the resolution. The following sentence has been added to the previously approved resolution:

“WHEREAS, the Commissioners Court agrees to provide applicable matching funds for the said project as required by the Criminal Justice Division grant application.”

The amount requested in the grant application is $21,000. Grantees must provide matching funds of at least 10% of total project expenditures. This requirement must be met through cash contributions and will be met using $2,100 from the Juvenile Probation Fees Special Revenue Account, department #1321.
