    The Committee reviewed the grant spending for Commission grantees as of 5/10/16. There is still one more month of expenditures owed before the end of the fiscal year but 65% of the total award has been spent.
    The Committee also discussed the impact of the state budget impasse on state contracts for grantees and diversion providers like CCBYS and Redeploy. Now that we are entering a new fiscal year, IJJC Chairman Timberlake suggests that the Commission review the ways in which providers were changed by delayed/reduced payments and how those changes may impact the juvenile justice system. Planning and Grants Chairperson Jacobs suggests discussing these issues in greater detail at the full Commission meeting on July 20, 2016.The issues to be discussed are 1) the details of the "stopgap budget" and how it includes Redeploy/CCBYS, 2) GATA requirements, 3) FY17 ICOY Contract. Karima Douglas will reach out to the ICOY Policy Director, to present on the stopgap budget and Karrie Rueter, DHS Associate Director of Youth Intervention Services Bureau to present on GATA requirements. Karima will also present on the ongoing deliverables under the ICOY contract.
