The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $500,000 to the Ohio Safe and Healthy Communities Campaign to support the Ohio Neighborhood Safety, Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Amendment. The amendment, which advocates plan to place on the ballot in November 2018, aims to reduce imprisonment for low-level, nonviolent drug and probation violation offenses; encourage participation in rehabilitation for people in prison; and reallocate prison spending to drug treatment, community alternatives to incarceration, and victim services.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

This discretionary grant is a renewal of our March 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
