Grants of $12,000 per year to USA nonprofits, schools, and agencies to improve or expand services that support the re-entry and re-integration of released prisoners. Applicants must submit a Letter of Interest and be invited to apply. Services should help resolve conflicts related to education, employment, community, and family for those who have recently been released or are scheduled to be released from the criminal justice system. Funding is intended primarily for staff time dedicated to program development activities, including participation in the learning community and the development of source materials.
Priority will be given to projects that, in addition to assisting individuals who are encountering conflict in such areas as employment or housing or education or domestic relations:
- Also seek to develop collaborative community relationships to effect positive systemic change in regard to prisoner re-entry and re-integration; and,
- Work to engage in public awareness and educational activities about the values of using community mediation for prisoner re-entry and re-integration. (See Hallmarks in Additional Eligibility for more information.)
The Mini-Grant Program is designed to encourage creativity and variation based on research. Service strategies will be developed through the implementation of the “Listening for Action” Leadership Process and strengthened by at least one policy or procedure change developed and locally implemented over a two-year period.
Mini-grant recipients will work together throughout the grant period anchored in the Learning Community. The Learning Community is a structured and collaborative peer working group facilitated by NAFCM. This structure serves as an incubator for innovation by aiding in the development of “good practices.” All written materials developed through these grants will be shared with community mediation centers and mediators across the continent. By distributing these materials, sharing programmatic resources, providing training, and developing national partnerships, NAFCM supports the replication of these service models and ensures the Program’s impact on an international level.
