CJI is proud to announce its 20th year of grant-making to grassroot organizations working to transform the current U.S. criminal legal system. The present moment in history places our movement at a critical juncture. CJI believes that formerly incarcerated and directly impacted movement leaders and their organizations, working at the grassroots and drawing from experience, must be at the forefront of determining the direction and policies that will move us forward. Our activism and energy should promote restorative justice, alternatives to incarceration, de-carceration, and an end to criminalization and state violence. Please accept our appreciation for the time you spend preparing the information that you provide to us. There is much more good work going on than we are ever able to fund. We thank you in advance for your efforts to bring about the end of state violence and communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
You are encouraged to take the eligibility quiz to see if your organization qualifies to apply.
Eligible organizations will be sent a link to the full application through Submittable. It is also recommended that interested and new applicants register for the RFP review webinar which will be held on Wednesday, June 24th at 2:00 PM. This year’s proposal deadline is Friday, July 10th 11:59 PM EST.
