Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to USA state, local, and regional courts to retain expert consulting services in order to understand an issue, plan a response to the problem, and carry out the required change. Funding may be used for consultant fees, as well as travel by officials from another court so they may examine the facility, practice, or program in another jurisdiction.

Factors that SJI will consider in awarding technical assistance grants include:
-The assistance would address a critical need of the court;
-The soundness of the technical assistance approach to the problem;
-The qualifications of the consultant(s) to be hired, or the specific criteria that would be used to select the consultant(s);
-The court’s commitment to act on the consultant’s recommendations; and
-The reasonableness of the proposed budget.

In calculating project duration, applicants are cautioned to fully consider the time required to issue a request for proposals, negotiate a contract with the selected provider, and execute the project.
