As part of our Reclaim Campaign, many of you worked to ensure an increase in funding for violence prevention grants in the Cook County budget. Through several years of work we were able to win significant increases to current grants as well as the creation of a new restorative justice grant in 2015.
The Justice Advisory Council (JAC), which administers these grants on behalf of Cook County, is preparing for their 2018 round of requesting proposals to fund community organizations with these grants. Many of you worked on these issues because your churches were interested in applying for these resources.
The JAC will be hosting a Capacity Building Workshop for organization interested in applying for these grants on Tuesday, December 12, 2017. If you are interested in applying we encourage you to attend. You can find the full details in the flyer below/attached. We do not have any information beyond this so please email any additional questions to JAC.Info@cookcountyil.gov.
