About the project 

The Public Engagement Pilot Initiative is a joint collaboration of the National Center for State Courts and the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center. This partnership will execute and oversee the Public Engagement Pilot Projects.


Public Engagement Pilot Projects

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) is initiating up to six pilot projects to learn more about how courts can best engage the public to overcome social inequities and bias in the court system and build trust between various publics and the courts. The NCSC will provide resources and support as indicated in the Call for Letters of Interest.

Courts can indicate their interest in becoming one of the pilot sites by sending a letter of interest to commengagement@ncsc.org. Letters of interest and supplementary materials must be submitted on or before August 31, 2018.  

Selected semi-finalist pilot projects will be notified by October 12, 2018.
