State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP)



SCAAP payments will be calculated using a formula that provides a relative share of funding to jurisdictions that apply and is based on the number of eligible criminal aliens, as determined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

SCAAP payments are calculated simultaneously, with applicants receiving a prorated payment based on the appropriation; costs submitted, and inmates as determined by DHS. All SCAAP payments are made electronically to the applicant's bank account of record identified during the application process.

All SCAAP payments must go to the jurisdiction's general fund. Please use the jurisdiction's EIN (tax identification) and vendor number when applying for SCAAP funds.
