The Bureau of Justice Assistance administers the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP). Under SCAAP, OJP makes payments to “states” and “units of local government” that incur certain types of costs due to “incarceration” of “undocumented criminal aliens” during a specific 12-month “reporting period.”

Under the FY 2020 program, payments will be made in connection with “undocumented” aliens who had been convicted of at least one felony or two misdemeanors (typically for violations of state or local law) and who were “incarcerated” under the legal authority of the applicant government for at least 4 consecutive days during the “reporting period.” The "reporting period" for the FY 2020 program is July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019.
