ASI is funded through “user fees” and does not receive any funding from local, county or state sources. However, ASI may apply from time to time for government grants and other public sources to fund its community awareness programs. User fees are collected from each participant in the respective programs. The fees are based on similar programs that are presented in other like organizations. The Administrative Office of Courts (AOC) and the court system, however, set the fees for some programs.
