County Eligibility Status for Reimbursement in Non-capital Cases: 12/15/2020

Currently, 66 of Indiana's 92 Counties are participating in the Commission's program and are eligible for quarterly reimbursements in exchange for following the Commission's Standards & Guidelines. 73 counties are currently eligible.

Counties wishing to participate in the Public Defense Fund reimbursement program must pass an ordinance creating a public defender board. The board adopts a comprehensive plan that outlines the methods for providing indigent defense services. If the public defense program in that county then abides by the Standards of the Indiana Public Defender Commission, it is eligible for reimbursement of up to 40% of felony and juvenile indigent defense expenses. (All 92 counties are eligible to receive 50% reimbursement of capital case defense costs.)
