Important info for ALL APPLICANTS:

Per CJD...

(1) It is imperative that all applicants read the Funding Announcement which corresponds with the funding source they plan to apply under this year. Applications have changed for all funding sources.

(2) All applicants must have their direct deposit forms uploaded before submission. eGrants will not allow an applicant to submit and certify their application without the required documents. Please allow extra time to complete this process.

(3) DHS Certification: In FY17, the authorized official on the grant was required to certify that sheriff's departments participated fully in DHS ICE detainer requests. Now, all FY18 applicants are required to submit a letter which will be valid for 2 years. Letter template verbiage can be found here - http://gov.texas.gov/cjd/dhs_detainerrequest. Each applicant must select 1 of the 4 options that best describes their agency along with the level of compliance of the county or municipal jail, if applicable.

(4) For FY18 all Juvenile, JAG and Truancy projects will be combined into one "Justice" application.

(5) For FY18 all VOCA and VAWA projects will be combined into one "Victims" application.

Important info for LAW ENFORCEMENT:

(1) LE agencies now only have to report 12 months of UCR data, to DPS, to be able to apply for JAG funding through the Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division.

(2) The COGs will no longer be reviewing interoperable communications equipment. This has been moved to the DPS Statewide Interoperability Coordinator (SWIC) for review. Grantees will be required though to cc and work with the COGs on development of these projects through the SWIC. Once received, all grantees must upload a letter or email, from the SWIC, stating that their equipment to be purchased meets statewide interoperability standards.
