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 required changed. 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.

TA Grants may not exceed $50,000.

Normally, the technical assistance must be completed within 12 months after the start date of the grant.

Grants provide state, local, and regional courts with funding.

Examples of expenses not covered by TA Grants include the salaries, benefits, or travel of full-or part-time court employees.

A cash and in-kind match must be provided equal to at least 50% of the grant amount, of which 20% of the match must be in cash. For example, an applicant seeking a $50,000 technical assistance grant must provide a $25,000 match of which up to $20,000 may be in-kind and not less than $5,000 must be cash.

The deadline for new grant applications for the 4th quarter of FY 2017 is August 1, 2017.
