The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $300,000 over two years to the Prison Policy Initiative (PPI) to produce reports and data analysis that are useful for campaigns by criminal justice reform partners across the country. PPI’s reports on the overall state of incarceration, women’s and youth incarceration, unemployment and homelessness among formerly incarcerated people, and the state of parole and probation, among others, have been used by many other groups in campaigns, in writing, and in public testimony. PPI plans to use these funds to continue to produce its annual publications and to continue to support organizations with data and research needs.

This discretionary grant follows our June 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
