The City of Burlington is seeking comments on our application in the amount of $49,948 for the US Department of Justice (DOJ) Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program for the Fiscal years 2021-2024. 

Through this grant the Burlington Community Justice Center (BCJC) seeks to continue building on the FY20-23 funds received to establish a Community Conflict Resolution and Mediation Program (CCRMP) to enable people who are not involved with the criminal legal system to take more control of their safety and well-being and that of their families, roommates, neighbors, friends, and colleagues. The CCRMP would educate and provide Burlington youth and adults with a body of culturally-specific tools and resources that build on the BCJC's work in restorative justice and conflict resolution. Alongside concrete skill building and support, this Program involves cultural competence, patience, promoting creative problem solving, and teaching communication skills that minimize aggressive ways of resolving conflict. 

 

These JAG Program grant funds must be spent within three years. If you are interested in receiving the project narrative, please email rjolly@burlingtonvt.gov through December 10th.
