Applying for the Court Improvement Program is a very cumbersome, multi-pronged process. There are actually three grants under this fund source, governed by two separate program instructions and requiring separate applications and program assessment reports for each grant. The state courts that apply for these grants have reported extreme duplicity of effort in compiling the documentation required during the process. ACF proposes to streamline the application and reporting mechanisms by consolidating the program instructions into a single program guidance issuance.
