Best Practices of Successful CJCCs Helpful Hints

Helpful Hint: Lack of funding can be one of the biggest obstacles to getting a successful CJCC off the ground. While shared support (each member agency contributes funding) is a goal, this may be difficult to achieve at the outset. Funding opportunities can be found through many other avenues (e.g. public and private grants) while you are trying to get the CJCC started. It may be easier to ask for funding once members have experienced the benefits of the council. See the leveraging resources section and staffing a CJCC section for further details on funding.
