Coming Soon: Upcoming Grant Opportunity
Posted: August 24, 2017

ICJIA ANNOUNCES UPCOMING ADULT REDEPLOY ILLINOIS FUNDING OPPORTUNITY

Adult Redeploy Illinois will release a Notice of Funding Opportunity in September for program planning and implementation grants. This opportunity will be open to counties, groups of counties, and judicial circuits, for designing and implementing data-driven, evidence-based alternatives to incarceration for non-violent offenders.

Grant Categories

  1. Planning grants to convene stakeholders and analyze data to develop a local plan for an ARI program.
  2. Implementation grants to implement an approved local plan for an ARI program.

ICJIA anticipates that approximately $500,000 will be made available through this funding opportunity for up to 10 planning and/or implementation grants. The six-month grant period will be January 1, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

ICJIA encourages potential applicants to ensure they have completed the pre-qualification process through the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) Grantee Portal, as only those agencies that have completed the process and received an approved ICQ from their State cognizant agency will be reviewed.
