This federal reimbursement formula grant seeks to provide funding to eligible counties to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus.

The following entities are ELIGIBLE to apply:

  • Indiana counties listed on the ICJI local allocation list may submit one (1) application per county, not to exceed the amount listed on the eligibility list. The applying county will be responsible for ensuring funds, or the products of those funds, are equitably dispersed among entities within the applying county that maintain a criminal justice nexus (e.g., law enforcement, courts, jails, prosecution, etc.).

The ICJI local allocation list can be found here: Eligible counties


The following entities are NOT ELIGIBLE to receive funding directly from ICJI:
