, , and across Illinois are overarching priorities for every grant program administered by ICJIA.

As we strive to innovate programming to bring about healing, we also must challenge ourselves to address systemic racism and implicit biases that paint a narrow picture of victimization.

Frequently, this picture ignores marginalized populations whose trauma often remains unaddressed, especially those in impoverished Black communities and other communities of Color.
