The Maryland Judiciary is seeking applications for its Juvenile and Family Special Projects to enhance the courts’ ability to support a fair, effective, and efficient process for resolving domestic and juvenile matters.
The JFS’s Special Projects Grant category funds a broad range of program types, including but not limited to Domestic Violence, Juvenile Justice, Child Welfare, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Adult Guardianship, and other Domestic Law programs.
These grants include, but are not limited to programs in the following categories:
- Domestic Violence
- Legal Services
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
- Juvenile Justice
- Child Welfare
- Adult Guardianship
To be eligible to receive a Special Project Grant, an applicant must be:
- Maryland State or local government, or
- Non-profit organization, or
- Institution of higher education within the state of Maryland.
- Special Conditions for CASA Grantees applying for Special Projects Grants
- CASA grantees are eligible to apply for Special Project Grants if the funding requested would support a project outside of the regular advocacy activities. (Examples: Funding could be granted for: Collaborative training between CASA programs; Collaborative training with DSS, DJS, Children’s Attorneys or other stakeholders; independent living skills training for older youth, etc.; but SPG funding would not be granted to cover the space/food/staffing costs of regular pre-service trainings.)
- Special Project funds awarded to CASA programs cannot be used as matching funds for the CASA grants.
