NIC Funds Efforts to Aid Children of Jailed Parents  

Justice Dept logoNonprofit agencies and faith-based institutions can apply for a cooperative agreement to develop and field test a curriculum to train jail and state correctional personnel in ways to reduce the trauma on the children of incarcerated parents.  

Deadline: Aug. 8; Funding, $1.1 million.

The Nat’l Institute of Corrections (NIC) at the Justice Dept. offers the funding through its solicitation Safeguarding Children of Incarcerated Parents: Developing and Implementing Family Strengthening Policies at Correctional Institutions at the Local and State level (CFDA Number: 16.601; Funding Opportunity Number: 16CS17).

The funding is to help local jails and state prisons to reduce the traumatic impact of parental incarceration on children and improve reentry outcomes for parents. This project will be modeled on the highly successful “Safeguarding Children of Arrested Parents” project that developed a model protocol for police, developed through a collaborative process, to reduce the traumatic impact of parental arrest on children.
