Funding available for community courts
The Center for Court Innovation, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, has a community court grant program. This initiative supports the creation and enhancement of community-focused courts that work to restore public confidence in justice and create new responses to low-level crime. Jurisdictions will receive funding and technical assistance to support their efforts to promote local alternatives to incarceration. Ten grants of up to $200,000 each will be made.Click here to download the competitive solicitation announcement and application instructions. Proposals are due on Friday, February 19.
