The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is accepting applications for the Adult Reentry and Employment Strategic Planning Program, which is funded through the Second Chance Act. Several years ago, BJA initiated a pilot project, the “Integrated Reentry and Employment Strategies” project that sought to test an innovative approach to reduce recidivism and increase job readiness for offenders returning from incarceration and to integrate best practices in reentry and employment. This grant program will provide funding for strategic planning grants to replicate the framework developed in the pilot project.
Eligible applicants are limited to state correctional agencies (state departments of corrections parole or probation), State Administering Agencies (SAAs), and federally recognized Indian tribes.
To learn more about this opportunity, see the solicitation. Applications are due by June 18.
