Court reform grant applications due July 1

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Courts that would like financial help to implement recommended improvements have until July 1 to apply for grants from the Division of State Court Administration.

Grants of up to $30,000 are available for initial efficiency studies, with grants of up to $40,000 available to put study recommendations into action. The grants fund programs designed to help courts streamline operations and upgrade outdated equipment.

Examples of projects funded in 2012 include the Marion Circuit Court’s implementation of recommendations of the Small Claims Task Force Report, released last May, which includes funding for a temporary law clerk who has drafted rules for uniform procedures in small claims courts. Money also went to the Adult Guardianship Task Force, which is working with the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee to create a statewide guardianship registry. This registry would help the courts oversee guardianship administration, as Indiana doesn’t currently have a way to track the number of guardianships.

For more questions or information about the grants, contact Elizabeth Daulton at 317-234-7155 or elizabeth.daulton@courts.in.gov. The grant application is available online.  Award letters will be mailed in August.
