Background and Discussion:
Harris County is in its sixth year in participating in the Safety + Justice Challenge with the MacArthur Foundation. The County was chosen in 2016 as one of eleven jurisdictions across the United States to receive $2 million to implement strategies for justice system improvement. In 2019, we applied for a renewal grant and received $2.1 million to continue the SJC work and expand our strategies. The renewal grant period will expire on June 30,2021. MacArthur Foundation approved the request for a No Cost Extension on April 12, 2021. We are respectfully requesting approval for a no cost extension to enable the County to use unexpended grant funds in the amount of $501,279 to cover several SJC strategies including the Racial and Ethnic Equity Committee work, three community micro grants, Pretrial Services Step-Down Pilot with GPL, and expanding JOY Pretrial Release Support Program.
