Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations, public agencies, faith- and community-based organizations, and colleges and universities to support efforts to reduce prison sentences for prisoners incarcerated as juveniles and to support subsequent reentry services.
The Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants is seeking applications for funding to support services and supports necessary to effectuate implementation of the Incarceration Reduction Amendment Act (IRAA), codified as Title III of the Comprehensive Youth Justice Amendment Act (D.C. Law 21-238). IRAA established a process for review of a defendant’s sentence and created opportunities for judicial discretion (eliminating mandatory minimum sentences for juveniles) and the possibility for reduced prison terms imposed on defendants convicted of an adult offense prior to their 18th birthday. Grant funds shall support facilitation of these efforts, as well as related reentry services for those receiving reduced sentencing.
Funding will be available for three grants:
OVSJG may give preference to an application that addresses all of the allowable activities in a single application.
