Albemarle County Awarded Federal Reimbursement from State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP)

The U.S. Department of Justice announced the award of $35,373.00 to the Albemarle County Regional Jail  to reimburse some of the costs of incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens who have committed serious crimes in the United States.  The goal of this program is to enhance public safety in communities throughout the nation.
This opportunity originates from federally mandated programs that the County is providing at local cost.  The Federal Government drives local political entities to assume more responsibility for the administration and delivery of government services, and many times these services are funded with local dollars.
In some cases, there are federal funding opportunities available, if the proper request is made.  Identifying federal funding stream opportunities and then properly applying for them are not simple or easy tasks.  The interaction between federal, state, and local political entities is complex, and often unwieldy for most local political entities.
Albemarle County Regional Jail is one of only 865 (out of 3,140) eligible local entities across the U.S. that successfully applied for these dollars.
