The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion is request­ing pro­pos­als for a research project that will inform the philanthropy’s emerg­ing work on com­mu­ni­ty-cen­tered youth diver­sion and pro­vide guid­ance to the field. The select­ed orga­ni­za­tion will con­duct a nation­al scan iden­ti­fy­ing dif­fer­ent approach­es used by neigh­bor­hood-based non­govern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tions that enable young peo­ple in trou­ble with the law to be divert­ed from for­mal jus­tice sys­tem involvement.

Watch a webi­nar about this RFP

The Foun­da­tion ulti­mate­ly seeks to iden­ti­fy and pro­file approx­i­mate­ly 10 to 15 ini­tia­tives oper­at­ing in dif­fer­ent regions of the coun­try, specif­i­cal­ly includ­ing the south and southwest.

The Foun­da­tion will make one award with a bud­get of $75,000 to $100,000.

The select­ed orga­ni­za­tion will be a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion, a uni­ver­si­ty or a pub­lic agency that demon­strates the capac­i­ty and rel­e­vant exper­tise to car­ry out these projects. The Foun­da­tion also is seek­ing an orga­ni­za­tion that has shown a com­mit­ment to racial equi­ty and inclu­sion and that has active­ly engaged young peo­ple and fam­i­lies affect­ed by the jus­tice sys­tem in its work.

Down­load the RFP on Com­mu­ni­ty-Based Juve­nile Diver­sion Initiatives
