XI. Raise the Age Report
No update at this time.
XII. Committee Updates:
The Youth Network Council (YNC) RFP states they have a term of contract with DHS. There is a need for a point person in each area. We need to make adjustments to the current plan due to Miguel leaving. Chairman Timberlake and Candice will work together to determine YNC’s role in relation to the JJ Commission and YNC’s overall roll. To establish the primary response, managing the meetings, etc. YNC only did a partial budget and are trying to annualize their budget. They need to update the plan and the end of May is an adequate due date.
XIII. New Business
Karrie Rueter explained there is another Second Chance grant open. This grant is in addition to the initial 2010 Second Chance grant. The application is due May 14th, so if we want to pursue more funding we need to act. A concept is needed for the grant. There are 15 projects only. It is a fixed amount with no additional funding. In order for us to put this together we need a concept. Rob Vickery had a suggestion to inquire into the Reentry sites that were not able to be funded as avenues for this Second Chance grant opportunity.
Commissioner Straza motioned to adjourn the meeting. Commissioner Rodriguez seconded the motion. All in favor, meeting adjourned at 11:00am.
