$8 Million to Advance Local Justice System Reforms
January 30, 2019 | Grantee News | Criminal Justice

Four communities that are part of the Safety and Justice Challenge are receiving $8 million in additional grants to continue building on efforts to advance local criminal justice system reform and safely reduce their jail populations. This renewed funding will allow Milwaukee, New Orleans, Pima County, Arizona, and Spokane to continue to strengthen and expand strategies that address the main drivers of local jail incarceration. Three years after its public launch, MacArthur has invested more than $166 million into the Safety and Justice Challenge, a collaborative of 52 counties, cities, and states modeling and inspiring reforms to create fairer, more effective local justice systems across the country.
