2018-2020 Application for Certification


Victim serving organizations who are subgrantees of The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC).

Any victim assistance program desiring to be certified by the CJCC to receive funds authorized under O.C. G.A. § 15-21-131 must submit a completed application with supporting documentation to the CJCC for consideration. Once certified, an agency is required to renew their certification, every two years, with the submission of another certification application.
