Application process opens for Court Security Cash Fund grants

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

DENVER – The Colorado Judicial Department has opened the application period for fiscal year 2023-24 grants from the Court Security Cash Fund, which was enacted in 2007 to provide Colorado counties with supplemental security funding at facilities housing a state court or probation office.

Grants to Colorado counties are awarded based on a priority schedule set in statute. Grants may be used for supplemental court security staffing for counties with the most limited resources, for security equipment or related structural improvements, for training of local security teams, for miscellaneous needs associated with court security, or for emergency needs related to court security.

Criteria for grants from the fund are counties whose total population is below the state median among counties; counties in which per-capita income is below the state median; counties in which property tax revenue is below the state median; and counties in which the population living below the federal poverty line is above the state median.

The Court Security Cash Fund has about $1.9 million available for grants for fiscal year 2023-24. Forty counties meet at least two of the criteria and are eligible for grants, and 30 of those are considered highest priority.

The grant application, rules and other information may be found at https://www.courts.state.co.us/Administration/Unit.cfm?Unit=facility.

Grant applications must be submitted to the Office of the State Court Administrator’s grant management system, Amplifund, by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 21, 2023. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
