Grants of up to $6,000 to New Jersey and Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations to promote justice in the criminal legal system.

Applicants must be located in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania or Camden County, New Jersey.

The Phoebus Criminal Justice Initiative provides grants to organizations using community organizing for criminal justice reform. Grantees target issues that include (but are not limited to) police accountability, racially biased sentencing policies, growth of the for-profit prison industry, criminalization of youth, and the death penalty.

The Phoebus Criminal Justice Initiative makes grants to community groups that are building a base for taking collective action against injustices within the criminal legal system and have a long-term vision and engage strategies that promote justice within the criminal legal system.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants range from $2,000 to $6,000.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations must meet all of the following basic requirements to be eligible for a grant from Bread & Roses:
- Must be located in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Camden counties
- Must be designated by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization or have a fiscal sponsor that is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization or have documentation of a pending 501(c)3 application with the IRS
- Must be current with all progress reports from previously awarded Bread & Roses grants

The Phoebus Criminal Justice Initiative makes grants to community groups that:
- Meet all of Bread & Roses basic funding criteria
- Have a long-term vision and engage strategies that promote justice within the criminal legal system
- Are led by people most affected by injustice, and build broad membership and leadership bases that can survive when key leaders step down
- Understand power differences based on identity and can talk about how they are trying to challenge those power imbalances both within their organizations and in their communities
- Have a shared vision for what that change looks like and can articulate that vision
- Prioritize ongoing education/consciousness raising for constituents and allies that broadens their membership base
- Have a plan, including short term and long term goals that are specific, achievable, and relevant to criminal justice
- Are knowledgeable about other organizations working on the same issue, and are able to work in coalition across movements, issues, and communities to amplify impact
- Are less likely to be funded by more traditional funders, because of their commitment to challenging power and prioritizing the leadership of marginalized people. Therefore, a grant from Bread & Roses Community Fund is critical to seeding or sustaining their work
- Are building a base for taking collective action against injustices within the criminal legal system and have a long-term vision and engage strategies that promote justice within the criminal legal system.

Bread & Roses does not make grants for:
