The recommended RFA is intended to provide a transparent and user-friendly process for courts seeking innovations grant funding. The RFA will be released on September 1, 2016 to trial courts and appellate courts to solicit grant proposals for monies appropriated by the Budget Act of 2016. The grant period runs June 1, 2017 through June 30, 2020.
