Request for Proposals for Social Enterprises
Through its Criminal Justice Investment Initiative (CJII), the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is soliciting proposals from qualified applicants to plan and pilot new, or expand or replicate existing, social enterprises serving young people at risk of justice system involvement and reentering/formerly incarcerated individuals in New York City. Both nonprofit and for-profit organizations are eligible. CJII is particularly focused on revenue-generating models that provide quality jobs for participants and facilitate positive economic impact in under-served and under-resourced New York City communities. Social enterprises funded by CJII should be located in and serve eligible residents of New York City. The deadline to submit proposals is February 10, 2017 at 11:59 pm. Proposals must be submitted through the CJII application portal.
