  Grant Amount: Dependent


The HIRE initiative is the latest program under the Corrections-Workforce Partnership, a state-level collaboration effort between CWDB, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and the California Prison Industry Authority (CalPIA).

HIRE is a new funding opportunity for community-based organizations (CBOs) and other nonprofit organizations to provide employment services to justice-involved individuals. Approximately $50,000,000 will be available to qualified grantees.
