Discuss, consider and take appropriate action to authorize the Williamson County Sheriff's Office to apply for the Criminal Justice Division General Victim Assistance Program grant.
Background
The Sheriff's Office is seeking to apply for the General Victim Assistance Program grant through the Office of the Governor's Criminal Justice Division. The project dates are October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021. This grant will provide the following for the Sheriff's Office Victim Assistance Unit: a one-year grant-funded Victim Assistance Caseworker position; a specialized software program to track individual cases and victims; registration and travel costs for the Victim Assistance Unit to attend conferences and trainings; two laptops and accessories; a desktop computer, office supplies and equipment for the department. The total amount of the grant is approximately $97,000, with $77,500 being requested from the OOG and a required 20% match of $19,500. The match will be in-kind and entirely met through the existing Victim Assistance Caseworker's salary and volunteer hours. No additional match will be required.
The Office of the Governor requires each applicant to submit a signed CEO/Law Enforcement Certifications and Assurances Form as well as a resolution to be approved by the governing body, naming the authorized official with signatory authority.
