The Civil Penalty and Forfeiture Fund is a “significant” source of revenue for North Carolina’s public schools, according to information compiled by the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts’ fiscal research division.

In fiscal year 2008-09, the CPFF generated more than $131 million that went into the budgets of the state’s public schools. A significant portion, $85.6 million, comes from the N.C. Department of Revenue. Other funding sources from fines and forfeitures include the state Department of Transportation, Department of Justice, Employment Security Commission, University of North Carolina, and Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Fines and forfeitures appropriations set by the N.C. General Assembly for fiscal year 2010-11 include $120.4 million for the State Public School Fund and $18 million for the School Technology Fund.

CPFF appropriations to local education agencies based on average daily membership for fiscal year 2009-10 include these figures:

  • Brunswick County: $967,859 allotted via the state Public School Fund and $242,709 allotted via the School Technology Fund.
  • New Hanover County: $1.98 million allotted via the state Public School Fund and $495,698 allotted via the School Technology Fund.
  • Pender County: $674,272 allotted via the state Public School Fund and $169,087 alloted via the School Technology Fund.
