Message from Executive Director Jay Neal
In light of recent concerns around the spread of COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety, the Governor’s office has instructed all state agencies to suspend non-essential training, beginning March 12, 2020.
In accordance with statute, certified local victim assistance programs are required to submit a report to CJCC annually via the "Certified Agency 5% Annual Report." County governing authorities submit a financial report to CJCC semi-annually via the “County 5% Semi-Annual Report."
Please read carefully.
Certified Agency 5% Annual Report
All agencies, except county governing authorities, certified to receive 5% Local Victim Assistance Add-On Fines must submit an annual report to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. This report includes the total amount of funds received, the purposes for which the funds were expended, and the total number of victims served in each county. To maintain certification, agencies must submit a report whether or not funds were received during the reporting period. Failure to submit this report will result in a request to Council to have the current year’s certification rescinded and a reduction in the agency’s grant award. You will need to report data for the period of January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019.
County 5% Semi-Annual Report
Every county governing authority receiving funds shall submit a financial report to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council semi-annually listing the recipients that directly received funds during the previous reporting period no later than the last day of the month following the reporting period in which the funds were collected in order to allow coordination of local, state, and federal funding for similar services. The county is responsible for submitting the reports even when it disburses all of the funds directly to the district attorney's office.
The data includes amount collected, retained, disbursed, which agencies received 5% funds from your county, and what purpose did retained funds serve. Once you begin the report, you must complete it.
Please note: It is the responsibility of the county to be aware of report requirements. Any county governing authority submitting late reports will subject their county to a graduated loss of grant funds, if any.
