Criminal Justice Program / CJD FY08 Criminal Justice Policy Development Committee (CJPDC) Funding Recommendations

moneyDisclaimer - If you receive a letter from NCTCOG indicating that your project is recommended to CJD for funding, this only means that your project scored above the cut off line for recommended projects (scored at least 60 points).

It DOES NOT mean that you will get funded.  CJD will make final funding decisions on our priorities based on the money available in each funding source.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is responsible for reviewing funding requests, setting priorities, and recommending allocation priorities for Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division (CJD) funds for projects in this region. CJD will verify the eligibility, reasonableness and cost-effectiveness of all grant applications, and submit the eligible applications to NCTCOG for scoring. Grant applications are reviewed by the Criminal Justice Policy Development Committee (CJPDC). The Committee is appointed by, and serves at the pleasure of, NCTCOG's Executive Board. The Executive Board then votes on CJPDC's priorities.

Based on NCTCOG's priority listing, and the availability of funding at the state level, CJD will render final funding decisions. CJD did not provide the Councils of Government with tentative allocations for FY 2008. Eligible Applications are scored by the CJPDC and those scores set the priority rankings. Below you will find NCTCOG's priority rankings for Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), Criminal Justice Planning Fund 421 (421), Safe and Drug-Free Schools & Communities Act Fund (SDFSC), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) applications.
