Description:

The Australian Government is inviting applications through an open non-competitive process to deliver justice reinvestment initiatives.

    • the development, implementation, and evaluation of local justice reinvestment strategies and activities
    • local project teams and leadership structures to undertake the work of developing, implementing and evaluating justice reinvestment strategies.

The intended outcomes of this grant opportunity are:

  • Improving justice outcomes and reducing contact with the criminal justice system and incarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults and young people, in line with Closing the Gap Targets 10 and 11.
  • Contributing to systemic reform of government systems that intersect with the justice system.
  • Contributing to building a strong and sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled sector delivering high quality services to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the country.
