Colorado Judicial Branch, Underfunded Courthouse Facility Commission
10/25/21 5:00 PM
Grants to Colorado eligible counties for projects to improve courthouse buildings. Applications must be reviewed and approved prior to submission. Funding is intended for planning, construction, remodeling, and urgent needs. The program is designed to supplement county budgets to meet the expanding needs of the legal system, including expanding caseloads, the allocation of new judges to the district, or the aging of existing courtroom facilities.
Eligible counties include: Alamosa, Archuleta, Baca, Bent, Cheyenne, Conejos, Costilla, Crowley, Custer, Delta, Dolores, Fremont, Gilpin, Hinsdale, Huerfano, Jackson, Kiowa, Kit Carson, Lake, Las Animas, Lincoln, Logan, Mesa, Mineral, Moffat, Montezuma, Montrose, Morgan, Otero, Ouray, Phillips, Prowers, Pueblo, Rio Blanco, Rio Grande, Saguache, San Juan, Sedgwick, Washington, and Yuma.
The responsibility for providing adequate courtrooms and other court facilities lies with the individual county governments. However, courthouses across Colorado are impacted by expanding caseloads, the allocation of new judges to the district, or the aging of existing courtroom facilities. These circumstances cause operational and safety impacts to the performance of judicial activities. In some areas, the necessary maintenance and improvements to the courthouse have been delayed or are hindered by the financial limitations of the county. The Judicial Branch worked with the General Assembly to create the Commission to assist these counties and ensure that the courthouses meet current safety standards.
Funds shall only be used for:
Applications requesting funds for emergency needs associated with the imminent closure of a courthouse facility will be given immediate priority and consideration for approval, depending on the availability of grant funds at the time of application.
