“Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) announced the availability of up to $250,000 in federal funds over a 12-month period from April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024 to support FY 2022 Assessing Racial & Ethnic Disparities (R/ED) in Pennsylvania’s Criminal Justice System Competitive Grant. Funding will support the work of a qualified provider to support a statewide needs assessment and analysis of disparity in the front end of Pennsylvania’s criminal justice system.
Through this competitive funding announcement, PCCD seeks to collaborate with an eligible applicant to develop and implement a statewide research initiative to identify current R/ED levels using quantitative analysis conducted by PCCD, obtain additional locally supplied qualitative data, where available, and make recommendations to chart a path forward. There are now approximately THREE WEEKS left in the application period!!
