FUNDING OPPORTUNITY - Sentencing and Incarceration Alternatives Project

The Open Society Institute is accepting letters of inquiry for grants under its Sentencing and Incarceration Alternatives Project, which supports groups working to eliminate racial and class disparities in sentencing and incarceration; limit the growth of prisons; mobilize communities affected by high rates of incarceration to call for changes in public policy; promote alternatives to imprisonment; and reduce the length of criminal sentences.

Advocacy groups, associations of elected officials, community organizations, government agencies, nonprofit business associations, and research or scholarly institutions may apply.

Application deadline is open. For more information, contact Christina Voight, OSI, 400 West 59th Street, New York, NY 10019; 212-548-0600, or e-mail
