More Funding Available for Reentry Projects!

CAWD is once again taking applications for small grants for reentry projects.
Capital Area Workforce Development Board (CAWD), in collaboration with Wake County Government, is looking to fund specific reentry projects from Wake County non-profit organizations. CAWD’s mission is to create a highly effective workforce system that provides employers with productive, skilled workers and offers citizens training and employment opportunities that promote job satisfaction and economic stability.

Successful applicants must show an understanding of the needs and employment barriers faced by Wake County residents whose lives have been impacted by the criminal justice system. Funded projects will have a clear, creative plan to provide justice-involved citizens the support and resources needed to gain employment. Funding will be offered as small grants up to $25,000. The contracts will last 1 year.

Applications are due February 7, 2024 by 5:15 pm. To apply, download this application, complete it and submit via this Smartsheet link.
