(f) Of the amount allocated in Provision 9, superior courts may retain up to 30 percent of the funding for costs 15. associated with these programs and practices.

Schedule (4), $30,000,000 shall be allocated by the Judicial Council as follows: Of this amount, $18,000,000 shall be allocated as one-time grants to eligible local courts. This (a) funding shall pay for the first year of employment and associated costs, including training, of any new hire of a court interpreter employee if all of the following conditions are met: The local court can demonstrate that for at least two consecutive years in the previous (1) four years it spent more than 20 percent of its interpreter funds on independent contrac- tor interpreters or part-time employees who provided services in any of the languages described in subdivision (b) of Section 1632 of the Civil Code. The local court can demonstrate that the grant will be exclusively used to hire full-time (2) court employee interpreters providing lan- guage interpreter services for the languages described in subdivision (b) of Section 1632 of the Civil Code, in order to reduce the per- centage of the court’s interpreter funds spent on independent contractors or part-time em- ployees to 20 percent or less than 20 percent. The local court can demonstrate that a new full-time employee hired pursuant to this (3) grant is intended to remain employed beyond the grant year to replace a roughly equivalent expenditure on independent contractor inter- preter services. The local court commits to retaining the court interpreter employee position beyond the grant year. (4) Nothing in this subdivision is intended to re- duce the amount of funding provided (5) statewide or to local courts for interpreter services, and the amounts allocated by this provision cannot be used to supplant an exist- ing, pending, or prior interpreter employee position. Of this amount, $12,000,000 in one-time grants, shall be allocated by the Judicial Council, to in- (b) 96 \u2014 8 \u2014 Ch. 240 crease language access in local courts through the hiring of certified court interpreter employees who shall provide interpreter services inside courthouses in support of court users. Interpreter services includes assistance at self-help centers and interpreting interviews between district attor- neys and witnesses and criminal defense attorneys and their clients. A local court is eligible to re- ceive these funds only if at least 80 percent of in- terpreter services in the languages described in subdivision (b) of Section 1632 of the Civil Code are provided by court interpreter employees. Courts may apply for grants to hire interpreters in other languages if the court can demonstrate (c) that there is a local need for interpreter employees in other languages. The $30 million for one-time grants in fiscal year 2021-22 shall be available for expenditure or en- cumbrance until June 30, 2024. (d) Of the funds appropriated in Schedule (1), $30,000,000 shall be allocated by the Judicial Council in a manner 30 that ensures all courts are allocated funds to be utilized exclusively to increase the number of court reporters in family law and civil law cases. This funding shall not supplant existing trial court expenditures on court reporters in family law and civil law cases. Of the funds appropriated in Schedule (1), $7,000,000 shall be available for the Judicial Council to establish 31. a methodology to allocate a share of resources to all courts to cover the costs associated with the increased transcript rates.
