Funding Available to Support Grassroots Organizing for a Healthy Juvenile Justice System
The Positive Youth Justice Initiative is entering its third phase, with up to $750,000 in grant funding available for nonprofit organizations in California to advance positive juvenile justice.
The Center for Health Program Management will fund grassroots organizations to advance the work of the Positive Youth Justice Initiative through community organizing to accelerate a statewide movement toward a more youth development-focused juvenile justice system. Awards will range from $75,000 to $150,000 over 18 months in counties throughout the state that are poised to transform their juvenile justice system.
Letters of intent are due on Aug. 2 by 1 p.m. and applications are due on Sept. 1 by 1 p.m.
Three proposers’ conferences are planned to review the funding opportunity and the application process. Participation in a conference is strongly recommended, but not required.
