Community Groups Urged to Apply for Restorative Justice Grants

Sep 22, 2010

From the announcement on the AUMA website:

Applications are now being accepted for 2010/11 provincial grants for restorative justice projects that support victim-offender mediation, training programs, leadership development in schools, and Aboriginal restorative justice programs.

Through the Alberta Community Restorative Justice grant program, the Alberta government has allocated $350,000 to support restorative justice programs and initiatives throughout the province.

Restorative justice programs address both the harm to victims and the community caused by crime, and the root causes of crime. These programs are an alternative or supplement to any sentence resulting from the crime, and can be initiated at any time during the criminal justice process. 

Incorporated non-profit and volunteer organizations, coalitions, local community groups, and Government of Alberta sanctioned youth justice committees are eligible for funding.

In 2009-10, 12 restorative justice initiatives across the province received grant funding totaling $311,000.

Information and application forms are available on the Alberta Solicitor General and Public Security crime preventionwebsite or by calling 780-415-1819 (dial 310-000 first for toll-free connection anywhere in Alberta).
