Wake Partners Small Grants for Reentry Projects – Summer Round

CAWD is 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. These grants are in keeping with our mission 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 support and resources needed to gain employment. Funding will be offered as small grants of up to $25,000. The contracts will last 1 year.

Applications are due August 18, 2023 by 5:15 pm.
