Multiple tools to aid in the creation of proposals.


Applicant Resources

The Foundation has created multiple tools to aid in proposal creation:

1. These guide sheets have been created as references for drafting a Target Results Statement. Each guide sheet is specific to each type of investment.

2. The Target, Verification, and Milestone worksheet will help you prepare your target statement, track project milestones, and verify your project results.

3. Please make sure you read the Prison Reentry Initiative Grant Guidelines before making your grant application.

4. For prospective grantees who could not come to our Grantee Training Workshop, the PowerPoint presentation is here.

5. This 7-part video series walks through each part of the application:


Projects selected for direct service programmatic investments will answer the question: What positive gains will occur for individual participants or communities? Projects include new or existing programs that work directly with incarcerated or formerly incarcerated individuals, employers, or community members to achieve results.

Capacity and Collaboration Building

Projects selected for capacity and collaboration building investments will answer the questions: How will your organization and/or other organizations be different, and how will collaboration improve effectiveness and efficiency while improving results for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals’ lives? Projects bring organizations together to strengthen the existing capacity and/or collaboration of reentry organizations to achieve results.

Systems Change

Projects selected for systems change investments will answer the question: How will your work inform change on a macro-level, including influencing policy or changing service provider practices? Projects include awareness efforts, research and advocacy efforts that lead to positive changes by state and local lawmakers, district attorneys, judges, sheriffs, wardens, and probation and parole officers.

The online application is available during the months of October and November.

The information you are providing will be used on all organizational documents and given to the Foundation Board of Trustees.

Also, remember to add and to your email program’s list of safe contacts.

*You should read the Prison Reentry Initiative Grant Guidelines before completing the application.

Fall 2017 was the final round of Prison Reentry Initiative applications.

We’d love to hear from you! Whether you’re working on an application, want to share good news, or need to brainstorm a new idea, we appreciate every opportunity to visit and learn with you.
