RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) for the FY 2016 State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP).
BACKGROUND
Over the past eighteen (19) years, Nueces County has applied to the Bureau of Justice Assistance for funding under the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program. The SCAAP reimburses some of the costs of incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens who have committed serious crimes in the United States. Under the reimbursement program, Nueces County has received a total of $1,752,288 for the fiscal years 1997 to 2015.
DISCUSSION
Justice Benefits, Inc., in partnership with the County Auditor's and Sheriff's Office, will be providing administrative assistance in developing the necessary data for submitting the County's request for reimbursement to the U.S. Department of Justice. BJA will activate the drawdown link in the Grants Management System (GMS) and Nueces County will then be able to accept the award. The total amount of the award is $24,253.00. There is no cash match for this grant.
