CRIME VICTIMS' ASSISTANCE

137-078-0000

Purpose

ORS 147.227 et seq ("the Act") provides that the Attorney General or the designee shall disburse a portion of the moneys that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Account receives from the Criminal Fine and Assessment Account (“CFAA”) to counties and cities where prosecuting attorneys maintain victims’ assistance programs approved by the Attorney General. The Act also requires the Attorney General to adopt administrative rules establishing criteria for the equitable distribution of moneys disbursed under the Act. OAR 137-078-0000 through 137-078-0050 (the “Rules) establish the criteria for the equitable distribution of moneys disbursed under the Act, and the establishment of an advisory committee to provide consultation on the distribution of the moneys.

Approval of Funding and Duration of Funding

(1) To be eligible and approved for distribution of moneys under the Act (“Fund” or “Funding”), a city or county victims’ assistance program (“Program”) must be operational at the time an application for Funding is made. A Program is operational for the purposes of this rule if at the time of application for Funding, it is providing the core services set forth in 137-078-0030.

(2) Programs which are determined to be eligible under the Act and these rules and are approved for Funding will continue to be approved for Funding indefinitely subject to the availability of Criminal Fine and Assessment Account revenues, OAR 137-078-0050 and the following:

(a) The Program shall, at the time the application for Funding is made state whether or not the approved Program will continue in operation for the then current fiscal year ending June 30. In the event the application indicates that the Program will not continue beyond June 30th of the then current fiscal year, Funding for the Program will expire on June 30th of that year. Any subsequent reactivation of a Program or initiation of a new Program will require a new application for Funding.

(b) If a Program discontinues a core services as described in OAR 137-078-0030, the Administrator may require a new approval of Funding, based upon a new Program application, in order to continue Funding of the Program. The addition of services to an approved Program does not require a new approval or new Program application for continued Funding.

(3) Program Funding will be made to approved Programs according to the criteria for equitable distribution of moneys set forth in the Act and these Rules. Program Funding will commence at the beginning of the fiscal year in which application for Funding is made, and will continue for a one or two year period immediately following execution of the Grant agreement for Funding by the Administrator. Funds will be distributed on a quarterly basis or as determined by the Administrator.

Distribution of Funds

(1) The Administrator, or designee during periods of absence or unavailability, is authorized to interpret and apply the criteria for the equitable distribution of moneys disbursed under the Act and these rules. The Administrator, after consultation with the advisory committee established under these Rules (the “Committee”), shall make decisions concerning eligibility of Programs for Funding. The Administrator is also authorized, after consultation with the Committee, to make all other decisions concerning distribution of moneys to counties and cities, including but not limited to, denial of Funding, conditional allocation of Funding when necessary to establish eligibility for Funding, notices and time limits for applications, acceptance of Funding terms, conditions and reports, method of review and role of the Committee, and reallocation of moneys not applied for or disbursed by Programs.

(2) The criteria for the equitable distribution of moneys disbursed under the Act and these Rules to Programs (the “Formula”) is based upon a model which considers historic county Program allocation methodologies as it’s basis along with the following criteria:

(a) The amount of Funding shall reflect consideration of county per capita population, county crime rates and other similar criteria.

(b) The Formula established for counties will be applied to cities, and be adjusted as necessary to reflect the current percentage of the total of Program Funding the counties have received under the current allocation per 137-078-0010(2)(a). New city Programs will only be approved for Funding after consultation with the Committee and after a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the County and City programs has been executed. The financial impact and Funding considerations associated with adding a new city Program will be considered in the context of ORS 147.227(2)(c) which requires service priority to victims of serious crimes against persons.

(3) The Formula may be revised periodically by the Administrator, following consultation with the Committee to reflect statistical updates relating to the criteria reflected in the formula, and the amount of Criminal Fine and Assessment Account revenues provided to CVSD’s Criminal Injuries Compensation Account.

(4) Distribution of moneys to Programs and the conditions relating thereto, including availability of monies available for Funding, shall be described in a grant award notification letter agreement established by the Administrator (“Grant”). The Grant shall incorporate by reference the requirements of the Act and these Rules, and such other terms and conditions which apply. If a Program elects to accept Funding based on the terms and conditions set forth in the Grant, an authorized representative of the Program shall sign the Grant in the manner provided therein, and return an original signed Grant to the Administrator within the timeframe established in the Grant. Upon receipt of the signed Grant, the Administrator shall distribute funds to the county or city upon the terms contained in the Grant.

(5) In the event the Administrator, after review of a Program, or otherwise, discovers non-compliance by a city or county with the terms of the Grant, Funds which were allocated to a non-compliant city or county may be reallocated to eligible cities or counties. This will occur by applying the Formula which is applicable to the city or county, to the monies which were originally allocated to the non-compliant Program. A reallocation of Funding shall thereafter be made to Programs which are in compliance with their respective Grants or held in reserve by the Administrator for future Grant allocations. The reallocation of funds derived from the non-compliant Program shall be made in the form of an Amended Award of Funding in the same manner as an initial award of Funding pursuant to a Grant.

(6) In the event Funds have already been disbursed to a Program which is or has been in non-compliance with the terms of the Grant, the Administrator, may adjust or reduce a Program’s allocation in future fiscal years to take into account the Program non-compliance.

(7) If a Program does not expend all of its allocated Funds for the period of time described in the Grant, upon request of the Administrator, the Program shall explain to the satisfaction of the Administrator why the Grant monies were not expended and how those monies will be incorporated into the next year’s Program. If the Administrator finds that the failure to expend all of the previously allocated funds was due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Program, the Administrator may permit a Program to retain some or all the funds for use in a subsequent Grant.

(8) Any Program which has unexpended monies pursuant to a fully executed Grant (including an Amended Award of Funding), and which elects to file an objection to a notice of its alleged non-compliance under these rules, shall retain said monies until such time as the filed objection is resolved by the Administrator in favor of the Program. In the event the objection is not resolved in favor of the Program, the Program shall immediately return the monies to CVSD.

Conditional Approvals

(1) “Conditional Approval” means Grant approval under circumstances in which the application establishes to the satisfaction of the Administrator that it would not be practicable at time of application for the Program to initiate or maintain a Program which provides all of the core services described in the Act and these rules.

(2) Applications for Conditional Approval shall set forth a time table for implementation of all core services required under the Act and these rules that cannot be provided at the beginning of the funding period.

(3) Conditional Approvals shall include the condition that continued approval is contingent upon complete implementation of additional services within an agreed to timetable, and that temporary approval for subsequent years will be contingent upon the addition of services and approval of the Administrator.

(C) Provide that ultimate program control and policy direction not addressed in the agreement shall be retained as the responsibility of the prosecutor and that he or she shall provide timely consideration and written determination thereof; and

(D) Provide a procedure for routine review by the city or district attorney of the contractor's performance, facilitated by quarterly activity reports to be made by the contractor to the prosecutor outlining the activities and accomplishments during the report period, any problems in operation or implementation of the contracted services, and any critical observations relative to the program's operation.
