RECOMMENDATION
Rescind resolution of January 21, 2015 and adopt a revised 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.
DISCUSSION
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. The amount requested in the grant application is $35,000.

We submitted an agenda item to court to submit and approve resolution for our drug court grant. In the resolution I stated with a required 10% match, which has always been required with this particular grant. We received noticed from CJD that this grant does not require a 10% match and wants a revised resolution.
