Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, businesses, and institutions of higher education to improve the ability of prosecutors to effectively represent the public’s interests in state capital cases. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to offer support, expertise, and coaching to prosecutors and defense counsel in capital cases.

The purpose of the Capital Case Litigation Initiative (CCLI) is to assist states with: (1) enhancing the ability of prosecutors to effectively represent the public in state capital cases; (2) developing and implementing appropriate standards of practice and qualifications for state and local prosecutors who litigate capital cases; (3) minimizing the potential for error in the trial of capital cases; and (4) improving the quality of legal representation provided to indigent defendants in state capital cases. 

Funding Categories:

  • Category 1: Prosecution-focused Training and Technical Assistance
  • Category 2: Defense-focused Training and Technical Assistance

For additional information about these categories, see: https://bja.ojp.gov/funding/O-BJA-2022-171276.pdf#page=5

A strong criminal justice system has a robust adversarial system and ensures that both prosecutors and defense attorneys have the training and technical assistance necessary to effectively carry out their legal obligations in all cases. CCLI focuses on training for prosecutors and defense counsel, standards of practice, qualifications and performance assessments for prosecutors, and potential justice system improvements that minimize the potential for error in the trial of capital cases.

The selected providers will engage the field and build capacity to understand and address capital case litigation. As part of this work, they will develop resources for prosecutors and defense attorneys involved in litigating capital cases, consistent with the information outlined above.
