Mini-Grant Program

For the last year the NACRJ leadership team has been working to develop a Mini-Grant program to recognize exceptional work by practitioners, educators and researchers who are applying the values, principles and practices of relational justice (i.e. community justice and restorative justice).  

We are very pleased to announce that the Mini-Grant program was approved last week by the Board of Directors and is now accepting proposals for the Fall 2016 award cycle.  NACRJ has dedicated $15,000 to the Mini-Grant program.
