Care of Rehabilitated Offenders Association Foundation

The Care of Rehabilitated Offenders Association (CROA) approved in March 2011 a grant of $1 million to the Correctional Services Department for setting up a subsidy scheme for three years, viz. the ‘CROA Foundation’ (CROAF). The Foundation ended in May 2015. In view of the success of the foundation in encouraging the continuing education of persons in custody, the CROA agreed to continue funding the CROAF. The donation of $1 million for funding the new scheme was received in June 2015. Since 2017, CROA further donated a total of $2,850,000 to the CROAF for providing financial assistance directly by the money donated to needy persons in custody to pay for education / vocational training courses, public examination fees and the like.

The Department invites applications for financial assistance three times a year.
