Court Reform Grant funds are available to assist courts in a district or county in addressing two common issues facing trial courts -- improving court accessibility for limited English proficiency (LEP) litigants, and managing an increasing caseload of unrepresented litigants (URLs). Grants of up to $50,000 are available to help courts improve processes to better meet the needs of LEP litigants (for example, by installing video court interpreting systems or purchasing "I Speak" cards). Grants of up to $50,000 are also available to help courts to develop and staff facilitation programs to streamline and organize cases involving URLs.
Applications must be electronically received in the Division of State Court Administration offices by 4:30 p.m. ET, Friday, July 31, 2015.
In 2014, the Supreme Court awarded more than $275,000 to 17 courts across the state for the study and implementation of various programs designed to help courts streamline their operations and purchase servers and scanners to help implement e-filing and Odyssey's document management system. Since 2008, the Court has distributed more than $2.5 million in grants to create more efficient court systems throughout the state.
