At the direction of the Chief Judge and Circuit Judges of the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit, a small portion of the fees paid by probationers is set aside to fund victim services' programs. Per State Statute, two dollars of the monthly amount collected shall be used to provide services to crime victims and their families, and the program shall be administered by the Chief Judge or his/her designee.
The Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court has established the Crime Victims Services Fund Committee (“Committee”) comprised of judges, probation and court staff to administer this program in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit. Funds may be used to create new programming, enhance the agency's current programming, purchase one-time capital items or be applied toward larger capital projects.
The Court is accepting applications from:
Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS
Agencies providing services to the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit
Completed applications are due no later than March 1, 2022. Grants will be awarded by May 1, 2022.
