SUBJECT: Amendment to Victim/Witness Assistance Program Grant Agreement

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):
TITLE
Approve and authorize the Chairman to execute First Amendment to Victim Witness Assistance Program Grant Agreement No. A-19-523 with the State of California, Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), effective upon execution with no change in term to September 30, 2020 and decreasing the maximum by $96,866 to a total of $1,562,493.

The recommended action removes the required match of $96,866 and decreases the grant agreement amount from $1,659,359 to $1,562,493. Based on the estimated grant expenditures of $1,052,029, Cal OES would no longer require $73,642 in matching funds from Probation in FY 2019-20 for Probation Grants Org 3432. It should be noted that since the grant agreement was effective October 1, 2019, approximately $23,224 in matching funds has already been paid.
