About Our Grants

In 2019, the Woodcock Foundation awarded the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City a one-year $50,000 grant. These funds are to support the NYC Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice in partnership with JUSTInnovate to lead a delegation to visit European prisons and correctional facilities. The trip will expose NYC criminal justice leadership to highly innovative built environments in Scandinavian correctional systems.
