bullet Family Court Administration and Self-Serve Center Strategic Marketing Campaign
Description: The self-serve center serves those who earn between $0 and $25,000 a year and are primarily between the ages of 26 and 35 years old with a high school diploma or some college classes. This grant funded the I-CAN! strategic marketing plan to reach and inform more potential litigants within and outside the immediate Mecklenburg County.

Description: Funding was provided for the annual Juror Appreciation Month held in July. The main objectives of Juror Appreciation Month are to educate the community about the judicial system, enhance public awareness of the importance of jury service, and to show appreciation to citizens who perform their civic responsibility. Funding was provided to replace a very large banner, called a wallscape, which thanks jurors for their service throughout the year. Additionally, continued funding for movies, newspapers, and magazines for the Jury Assembly Room was provided as another means to make jury service a more pleasurable experience for those citizens who perform this service throughout the year.
