The purpose of the Special Initiatives Department is to provide programs and services that do not fit in any of the other 11 department categories. The Special Initiatives Department will have a large focus on criminal justice reform, including programs and services for formerly incarcerated members and those with felony convictions seeking meaningful employment and social support services. Other programs and services from the Special Initiatives Department range from a disaster relief fund, a BAF television station, a young pilots program, as well as programs and services that strengthen the Black family, such as grants for date nights, free wedding services and more.
Through the Special Initiatives Department, the BAF will have the flexibility and resources to develop new innovative programs and services that enhance Black life and provides solutions to seemingly intractable problems facing the Black community.
