This is the kind of news we love to share;
RJP was recently awarded nearly a million dollars from the Office of Justice Programs ($924,307) for a 48-month grant from the the Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction program. Only 14 grants were awarded and are thrilled to be one of them.
We’ll use the grant to work in partnership with the Midcoast communities to test and implement a model of Community Justice Centers across Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties which make up Prosecutorial District 6.
The grant supports a unique and innovative collaboration between RJP, law enforcement, elected officials, and the University of Southern Maine.
In addition to the grant, which paves the way for Community- based Justice Centers, RJP is announcing that it will seek a new Executive Director to lead the organization forward, as the current director takes on leadership of the 4-year grant.
