Background and Discussion:

These grants are awarded to support MDL pre-trial judges and the court staff who serve them. These programs enable the MDL system to operate more efficiently and achieve the Legislature's goals of justice and efficiency (see TEX. Gov't Code ?74.162).

Expected Impact:

The County will be reimbursed by the grantor for program expenses incurred, there is no cash match requirement and therefore no impact on the general fund.

Alternative Options:

There is no general fund budget for this program. In the event the grant is not funded, the program would have to seek alternate sources of funding.

Alignment with Goal(s):
x Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
_ Housing
_ Public Health
_ Transportation
_ Flooding
_ Environment
_ Governance and Customer Service
