Mini-Grants

NACRJ Mini-Grant Program

It's back! For the second year, we are very pleased to announce that the Mini‐Grant program was approved by the Board of Directors and is now accepting proposals this fall, 2017.

NACRJ has dedicated $20,000 to the Mini‐Grant program this year. $15,000 is set aside for proposals of all types. In light of the current climate of the United States, we have earmarked an additional $5,000 for proposals that help address the deep polarization between liberal and conservative communities.

Membership in NACRJ is required for all applicants. Anyone who is not a member should join NACRJ to be eligible for an award in the NACRJ Mini-Grant program. If you are not a current member of NACRJ, please click here.  

The deadline for submission for all proposals is Monday, November 27 , 2017. All 2017 NACRJ Mini-Grant recipients will be notified via email on or before Friday, December 15, 2017. A public announcement will follow shortly afterward.

The NACRJ leadership team hopes to sustain this Mini-Grant program year-by-year to recognize exceptional work by practitioners, educators and researchers who are applying the values, principles and practices of community and restorative justice. As before we are excited for this opportunity to encourage and recognize new initatives in our field.
