Clean Slate and Occupational Licensing Reform Funding Opportunities

May 2017

As many as one in three Americans now have some type of record. Having a record doesn’t just stand in the way of economic opportunity for people with records; as a 2015 analysis by CAP showed, nearly half of U.S. children now have at least one parent with a record, and the barriers associated with a parent’s record can significantly limit a child’s life chances.

With support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Center for American Progress (CAP), working with the National Employment Law Project (NELP) and Community Legal Services of Philadelphia (CLS), is pleased to announce new funding opportunities to expand employment options for people with arrest and conviction records by advancing automatic sealing policy and occupational licensing reform in select states.
