Chief Justice Appoints Working Group on Innovations Grants

June 30, 2016

Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye has established a Judicial Council working group to develop a competitive grant program for innovative and efficient judicial branch services and programs. The Budget Act for fiscal year 2016–17 provides $25 million for grants to improve access to justice for court users and the public.

To be used over a multi-year period, the funding will support innovations in collaborative courts, self-help, family and juvenile courts, and other efficiencies in the trial and appellate courts. The programs selected must have quantifiable results or benefits, consistent with the statutory requirements, that have a validated impact on the court and the public it serves.

The first meeting has not been set, but the working group plans to meet over the next several months.
