The purpose of the CARE grant program is to provide grants to eligible non-profit organizations to fund CARE grant programs at one or more California prisons.
Applicants must develop a specific proposal designed to meet the unique needs and requirements of the specific grant program(s) proposed, as well as meet the needs of the incarcerated individuals in California prisons, where the CARE grant programs will be provided.
This project will provide $5 million in grants per year for three terms ($15 million total) to eligible non-profit organizations to fund transformative programs in one or more California prisons. The grant period begins on July 1, 2022 and ends June 30, 2025.
Grants shall be awarded to fund programs that provide insight-oriented, transformative justice programs focused on increasing empathy and accountability among participants that can demonstrate that the approach has produced, or will produce, positive outcomes in correctional environments as stated in California PC § 5007.3.
Non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for a CARE Grant(s). Organizations that do not have a non-profit status may operate under the sponsorship of a fiscal agent with non-profit status for purposes of grant eligibility.
If the applicant is a multi-state organization with headquarters in another state, the applicant must have physical offices in California and currently provide services to California residents.
