Discuss and consider authorizing submission of a grant application to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) under the FY 2015 State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) for reimbursement of costs related to incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens.
Over the past eighteen (18) years, Nueces County has applied to the Bureau of Justice Assistance for funding under the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program. The SCAAP reimburses some of the costs of incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens who have committed serious crimes in the United States. Under the reimbursement program, Nueces County has received $1,731,495 from FY 1997 to FY 2014.
Justice Benefits, Inc., in partnership with the County Auditor's and Sheriff's Office, will provide administrative assistance in developing the necessary data for submitting the County's request for reimbursement to the U.S. Department of Justice. The year's SCAAP deadline for application submittal is April 20, 2015 and the application will be submitted electronically through the Grants Management System of the Office of Justice Programs.

There is no cash match for this grant. The funding allotment has not been determined yet for the grant. Justice Benefits, Inc. has not yet estimated this year's submission reimbursement.
