Community Empowerment and Reinvestment Grant Program

Community Empowerment and Reinvestment is an operating grant program that supports local efforts to bring positive economic outcomes to communities that face historically disproportionate challenges to economic growth. The program was developed to support communities with high rates of criminal justice system involvement, widespread poverty, and large groups of disadvantaged and underrepresented populations.

This program seeks proposals for projects and programming that entail community-driven responses to community-defined economic opportunities, and that build leadership, collaboration, and capacity at the local level.
