In 2018, the MacArthur Safety and Justice Challenge awarded Access Living a one-year planning grant to research, analyze, and report on how to reduce the incarceration of people with disabilities, with an initial focus on the Cook County criminal justice system. In December of 2019, Access Living published the results of our research, Access to Justice: A Cross-Disability Perspective on Reducing Jail Incarceration, and policy recommendations for reducing the incarceration of people with disabilities.  

Over the next two years, additional funding from the MacArthur Safety and Justice challenge will allow Access Living to continue its work in disability and the criminal justice system.
