Budget Notice

Judicial Council Approval

At today’s July 15, 2022 business meeting, the Judicial Council approved 2022–23 Trial Court Trust Fund (TCTF), State Court Facilities Construction Fund (SCFCF), and General Fund allocations to the trial courts.

Allocation Workbook

To assist courts with budgeting allocations, this year’s allocation workbook includes two worksheets that display the trial court allocations and the Workload Formula allocations separately:

• The “TC Allocations” tab displays 2022-23 trial court base and non-base allocations and includes general ledger numbers for each allocation. Columns Y through AA display the non-TCTF allocations.

• The “Workload Allocation” tab displays the 2022-23 Final Workload Allocation (column AE), the  2022-23 Workload Formula (“need”) (column AF), and Workload Formula Percentage (column AG).

Also included is the 2022-23 Workload Formula which includes the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Resource Assessment Study, and Full-Time Equivalent need.

Judicial Council Reports

The Judicial Branch Budget Committee and Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee reports to the council provide helpful detail regarding the allocations, and can be viewed by following the links below on the California Courts website:

The final reduction for fund balances above the 3 percent cap, based on courts’ final 2021-22 year-end fund balance figures, will occur following Judicial Council approval at its January 2023 business meeting.

Reporting Requirements

As a reminder, California Rule of Court (CRC) 10.620(f) requires trial courts to provide notice no later than 15 court days after “[r]eceipt of the annual allocation of the trial court budget from the Judicial Council after enactment of the Budget Act.” Since this email serves as notification of courts’ annual allocation for 2022-23, courts must provide notice no later than Thursday, August 4, 2022.

Examples of what can be done to provide notice and comply with the rule include, but are not limited to, the following:

(a) Posting this email and the 2022-23 Allocation Display of the attached workbook; or

(b) Posting the links to the July 15, 2022 Judicial Council reports.

Should you have any questions about these allocations or CRC 10.620(f) compliance, please contact Oksana Tuk, Senior Analyst, at or (916) 643-8027.
