Dear Friends,

Last week the Vera Institute announced an RFP for post secondary education and reentry programs. It is available in six states – Colorado, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Washington State for at least $1 million per state. John Linton alerted me today and I called the Vera Institute Project Director Fred Patrick who encouraged me to disseminate the RFP as widely as possible. He would like CEA β€œto generate funder and stakeholder enthusiasm and interest in the Pathways Project and broader correctional education efforts.” This will be the first CEA effort to assist Vera with its goals.

So please find the RFP attached and the Media Advisory below. This is truly exciting because four foundations – Ford, Bill and Melinda Gates, the Sunshine Lady and the Open Society are funding this project through Vera. I am sure this will generate tons of interest everywhere.
