Safe and Just Nebraska will provide microgrants to people to buy home safety equipment — cameras, monitoring services, and legal personal protection items. Many individuals who have a previous experience with the criminal justice system are exposed to hatred and vigilante violence. Their homes are invaded, their property damaged and their loved ones are threatened with violence. Law enforcement and community leaders do little to nothing to prevent this tragic state of affairs. A Safe and Just Nebraska panel will review applications from qualifying individuals for funds to purchase home safety and legal personal protection equipment. Information about how these funds are used will be reported to donors.

Safe and Just Nebraska will provide microgrants to support people coming out of prison in finding housing and employment. Safe and secure housing and stable employment are two factors that increase an individual’s likelihood of successfully reintegrating into the community once a term of incarceration or probation is completed. Grants may be used for rent deposits and other expenses involved with acquiring safe housing, as well as for preparing for employment. The latter might include training, transportation to interviews, or acquisition of appropriate documentation. A Safe and Just Nebraska panel will review grant applications and information about how these funds are used will be reported to donors.
