The CDRCP program is a unit of the New York State Unified Court System's State Alternative Dispute Resolution Office. It is a joint local/State effort to provide community forums for dispute resolution as an alternative to criminal, civil and Family Court litigation. It is supervised by the Chief Administrative Judge of the Courts. Its primary function is to administer, fund and oversee the statewide network of community-based dispute resolution programs. The report presents a narrative summary of program activity during fiscal year 1998-99, including caseload overview, fiscal policy and administrative policy. It also discusses partnerships in alternative dispute resolution, for example: Family Court Mediation, School-Based Conflict Resolution, Special Education, Early Intervention Services and Fee Dispute Arbitration in Domestic Relations Cases. It reviews annual training and development programming and a statewide program satisfaction survey. Appendixes
