BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – State Rep. Sharon Chung, D-Bloomington, is encouraging local organizations to apply for the newest round of grants from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA)’s Restore, Reinvest, and Renew (R3) program. $30-million in grants are available for various kinds of organizations serving a wide range of needs.

“These grants present a fantastic opportunity for Illinois organizations and groups to acquire key funds,” Chung said. “These grants for groups working in important areas like youth development and violence prevention will have a positive impact for those in our community who need help most.”

This program provides grants to organizations in communities that disproportionately face issues such as gun violence, child poverty and unemployment. Applications are due by April 30. More information is available at

“I implore groups of all kinds, including non-profits, faith-based organizations and local businesses, to look into the funding opportunities available,” Chung said. “There are many local organizations that would be able to do great things with this opportunity.”
