2019 State of the Court
FINANCIALS AND WORKLOAD
CONTINUED INVESTMENT IN ACCESS AND INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGH STATE FUNDING EQUALIZATION In Fiscal Year (FY) 2013-14, the Judicial Council implemented the Workload Funding model (then known as the “Workload-based Allocation and Funding Methodology” or ”WAFM”) in order to help address historical funding disparities across the 58 counties. At the beginning of this multi-year effort, the SBSC was funded at roughly 48% of its workload-based need. As of Fiscal Year 2019-20, SBSC is now funded at over 78% of its workload need. The FY 2020-21 budget proposals included in the January Proposed Budget would bring SBSC’s funding to about 83% of workload need.
