  • Current: Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is seeking applications for the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) Program, which is a federal reimbursement formula grant to help eligible counties prevent the spread, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. As the second solicitation for this program, the following list includes the counties that are still eligible to participate: Eligible Counties.

To receive funding, each county is required to submit (1) application, not to exceed the amount listed (amounts were determined based on the county’s total population). Counties are responsible for ensuring the funds, or the products of the funds, are equitably dispersed among entities within the county that maintain a criminal justice nexus (e.g. law enforcement, courts, jails, prosecution, etc.). This award is governed by 2 C.F.R. Part 200 and the DOJ Grants Financial Guide. All applicants must adhere to all provisions set forth in federal and state statute, regulation, or rule.

The award period for this program is January 20, 2020, to January 19, 2022. To see a sample application, please click here. Any application received after the extended deadline will not be considered for funding, and funds will be reallocated to other eligible entities.

Applications are due by Monday, Nov. 9.
