The Reentry and Employment Project
Uniting business leaders, policymakers, and practitioners from the corrections and workforce development fields with the goal of improving reentry and employment outcomes for individuals with criminal histories
Project Overview and Resources
There are two core objectives supported under the Reentry and Employment project:
Watch business leaders and policymakers discuss the benefits and challenges of hiring individuals with criminal records.
Find tools and resources on how to address barriers to employment for individuals with criminal records.
The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center’s Reentry and Employment Project is supported by the leadership and support of a public-private partnership involving the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, with guidance from the Employment and Training Administration at the U.S. Department of Labor.
