The Vera Institute of Justice is soliciting applications from public housing authorities who would benefit from nine months of technical assistance as they seek to plan and implement reentry programs or change their policies in order to safely increase access to housing for people with juvenile records or adult criminal records.
Housing authorities of all sizes are encouraged to apply, including those administering housing choice vouchers. In addition, multiple housing authorities in the same geographic area may decide to apply together in a single application, in the event that they have common goals and believe that coordinating their reform efforts will increase the local impact of their work.
The request for proposals provides further details about the project, including selection criteria. Applications are due May 12.
