Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor has announced 47 local court projects are receiving nearly $3 million in technology grants.
The grants pay for security improvements and upgrades to case management systems through the Ohio Courts Technology Initiative.
This is the fifth year for the grants since O’Connor started the program, with more than $14 million provided to Ohio courts to date.
O’Connor says courts must do more with less today and technology can help address that gap.
Ohio municipal, common pleas, appeals, and county courts are encouraged to apply annually for grants to upgrade their systems, hardware or equipment, or purchase new ones.
Courts receiving the grants were selected by a 16-member panel of judges, court administrators, clerks, information technology professionals and security experts, among others.
