“Wake Partners” Grants Available for Reentry Projects

CAWD is making a new round of Wake Partners grants available to local non-profits for reentry projects. Funding comes from Wake County’s portion of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars. Wake County is committed to supporting initiatives that make a positive difference in the lives of people who historically have been disproportionately marginalized, disenfranchised, and underrepresented. This includes returning citizens who are a major focus at CAWD.

Applicants must be located in Wake and proposed projects must show an understanding of the needs and barriers of those impacted by the criminal justice system, and provide returning citizens the support and resources needed to be successful. Organizations that will be considered for a Wake Partners grant must have a clear, and creative plan.

The maximum grant award is $25,0000, though the average will be $10,000 or less.

To be considered, organizations must:

–Provide services to justice-involved returning citizens of Wake County

–Be located in Wake County with 501(c)3 status

–Be qualified by the State of North Carolina to receive grant funding

Download this application and follow the instructions for submission.

The deadline to apply is February 11, 2022, by 5:15 pm. No exceptions.
