Title

Trial Court Budget | Court Interpreter Employee Incentive Grant Award Recommendations (Action Required)

body

Summary

Summary

The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee recommends grant awards to nine superior courts that applied for grants to implement Senate Bill 170, which amended the Budget Act of 2021 and provides $30 million in one-time General Fund through the establishment of the Court Interpreter Employee Incentive Grant. This grant provides funding for one year of salary and training costs to establish new, full-time court interpreter employee positions. The committee also recommends that a future grant application cycle take place for fiscal year 2022-23, since remaining grant funding is available until June 30, 2024.
