Multiple Funding Opportunities From Board of State and Community Corrections
January 24, 2019
The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) has recently posted new funding opportunities, in a variety of subject areas, on their website. A brief description of the funding opportunities are located below.
- Adult Reentry Grant (ARG)- Funding will support California’s efforts in providing resources to people formerly incarcerated in state prison. Eligible applicants are Community-Based Organizations located in the State of California that have 501(c)(3) status (i.e., nonprofit).
- Youth Reinvestment Grant (YRG)- Funding for programs and services that will divert youth away from the juvenile justice system. Funded grant programs will do so by partnering with Community-Based Organizations (Non-Governmental Organizations) to provide evidence-based, trauma-informed, culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate diversion options at various points of entry to the juvenile justice system (90% pass-thru funding to CBOs).
- Tribal Youth Diversion Grant (YRG Tribal)- Funding for Indian tribes to implement diversion programs for Indian children that use trauma informed, community-based, and health-based interventions.
- JAG Byrne- Funding provides critical funding necessary to support state and local initiatives including: technical assistance, strategic planning, research and evaluation (including forensics), data collection, training, personnel, equipment, forensic laboratories, supplies, contractual support, and criminal justice information systems.
- Prop 47- Funding to provide mental health services, substance use disorder treatment and diversion programs for people in the criminal justice system. The grant program may also provide housing-related assistance and other community-based supportive services, including job skills training, case management and civil legal services. The grant can fund programs that serve adults and/or juveniles.
All of these Request for Proposals (RFPs) are located on the BSCC homepage. Each individual RFP has different eligibility, grant requirements and due dates. Additionally, each grant will conduct a Bidders’ Conference beginning this week. It’s believed that each of the grants will have a livestream opportunity for those who cannot travel to the BSCC.
Finally, Title II has an estimated RFP release date of April 2019.
