Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner announced the eighth round of violence prevention microgrant awards at a press conference on Monday.

The latest awardees include several community-based organizations committed to aiding the reentry process for formerly incarcerated individuals and providing paid internship opportunities to local youth, among other services.

Twelve organizations will receive a total of $282,775. The money comes from civil asset forfeiture, which means it is taken from people who have gained the money from criminal activity or used the money to carry out criminal activity.

Recipients include: New Leash on Life, Why Not Prosper, Baker Industries, PAR RecycleWorks, and Youth Sentencing and Reentry Project.
