Grant Funding
  
Justice Initiatives’ mission is to educate the community about the court system and to advocate, support and advance its needs and interests.

The purpose of Justice Initiatives (“JI”) is to:
bullet Educate and advocate regarding the needs of court system offices and programs within the 26th Judicial District.
bullet Receive, hold and disburse funds donated by individuals, foundations, corporations, and
governmental entities that are earmarked for particular offices, programs and/or services within the 26th Judicial District.
bullet Support fundraising activities for court system offices and programs within the 26th Judicial District consistent with abilities and resources.
bullet Advance reforms related to the judicial branch’s organization, structure and/or administration.
 
To further this mission, JI holds a competitive grant processes to address needs in the Twenty-Sixth Judicial District.  JI will also consider grant proposals outside this process on a case-by-case basis if a demonstrated need is urgent. Any award amounts will be determined based on the merit of the project and available funds.
 
In addition, JI serves as a funding "pass-through" entity.  Qualified government agencies or ad-hoc organizations who have funds from other sources (i.e., grants, gifts, etc.) may apply to JI to hold and administer those funds.  JI will administer these pass-through funds consistent with the mission statement above and the stated purposes of the grantor.  An annual administrative fee not to exceed 1% of the total amount that JI is being asked to manage will be assessed for "pass-through" services.  This fee may be waived for good cause at the discretion of the board.
 
In those instances where JI is asked to co-sponsor a fundraising event and act as a pass-through entity for the administration of any funds raised, the requesting agency shall pay JI a fee equal to 25% of the proceeds from the co-sponsored fundraising event.  All fees retained by JI shall be for use at the
discretion of the board.

Applications and consideration are made according to JI-defined requirements and timelines.
