Grant Description
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, businesses, and institutions of higher education to improve the ability of prosecutors to effectively represent the public’s interests in state capital cases. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to offer support, expertise, and coaching to prosecutors and defense counsel in capital cases.

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications to provide training and technical assistance (TTA) to judges who preside over state capital cases.

This program focuses on ensuring quality representation and fair and impartial proceedings in capital cases. With this particular solicitation, BJA seeks to ensure judges have the most up-to-date and comprehensive information available to them on death penalty law by providing high quality TTA on legal issues they may face when presiding over capital cases.

The goals of the FY 2023 CCLI solicitation are to:

  • Establish or enhance relationships with chief judges and the bench in states where capital punishment is currently authorized to determine the needs of judges and provide resources that help meet the unique needs in capital cases.
  • Create training programs and/or provide resources and tools to judges who preside over state capital cases to minimize the potential for error in these trials. 

Objectives 

  • Develop an understanding of resources available to judges that are specific to capital cases.
  • Strengthen relationships with state judicial leaders to make training and resources that have already been developed readily available to the bench.
  • Enhance the expertise of state judges who preside over capital cases.
  • Enhance opportunities for peer-to-peer learning by providing information sharing and training on best practices in capital cases.
  • Establish and broadly disseminate standards of practice for judges in state capital cases.
