Funding Available for Public Engagement Pilot Projects

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) and the SJI-funded Community Engagement in the State Courts Initiative is supporting up to six pilot projects to learn more about how courts can best engage the public to improve trust and confidence in the judiciary.  The selected courts will receive as much as $30,000 in funding; technical assistance from the NCSC; and an independent evaluation of the program.  The NCSC will provide resources and support as indicated in the Request for Letters of Interest.
