OAR 213-060-0050
Grant Applications


The grant application cycle will be determined by the Commission. At the beginning of each grant application cycle, the Commission will determine the proportion of grant funds available to each county in accordance with the formula used to distribute baseline funding under ORS 423.483 (Baseline funding). The Commission will include those amounts in its grant application solicitation. Each qualifying county pursuant to criteria in subsection 213‐060‐0060 shall receive a grant award of no less than $100,000 per grant application cycle.


Each county may submit only one application for a justice reinvestment grant to fund one or more community‐based programs. The application must be submitted by the local public safety coordinating council and include proof of approval by the county governing body.


Each county must include in its application a statement of commitment to reduce recidivism and decrease the county’s utilization of imprisonment in Department of Corrections facilities while protecting public safety and holding offenders accountable from the relevant stakeholders of the service or program for which the county is requesting funding, including the district attorney, presiding judge, and community corrections director.


The county may use up to 10 percent of the funds payable under the justice reinvestment grant for administrative costs, including activities such as purchasing, budgeting, payroll, accounting, staff services, and other costs as deemed appropriate by the Commission. Administrative costs may also include funds to incentivize compliance by law enforcement agencies with completing Uniform Crime Reporting and other timely law enforcement data collection activities.


The Commission may communicate directly with an applicant to clarify the intent of its application or to recommend modifications in furtherance of the purpose of the Justice Reinvestment Program.


The Commission may, in its sole discretion, waive solicitation requirements or cancel any solicitation in whole or in part if it deems such action to be in the best interests of the Justice Reinvestment Program.


Within 90 days following the expiration of the grant application deadline, the Commission shall make award notifications to counties in accordance with these rules. If there are extenuating circumstances, the Commission may, in its sole discretion, extend the deadline for award notification.


If unallocated funds remain at the conclusion of the grant acceptance period, the Commission shall distribute all remaining funds in the manner provided in OAR 213‐060‐0080.
