Early Grant Information for NGOs

The Upholding the Rule of Law and Preventing Wrongful Convictions (ROL/WCR) Program is committed to protecting the integrity of the criminal justice system and the consistent application of due process for all. The ROL/WCR Program supports efforts by wrongful conviction review entities (WCR entities) that represent individuals with post-conviction claims of innocence to review individual cases.

The goal of the ROL/WCR program is to enhance the capacity of WCR entities and their criminal justice and victims partners to better identify, assess, and manage post-conviction claims of innocence while translating lessons to prevent error and bring justice for victims
