Funding Spotlight: Adult Reentry Education, Employment, Treatment, and Recovery Programs

May 19, 2021

People returning to their communities from prison or jail have complex challenges and needs that can contribute to the likelihood that they may reoffend. At a time when jurisdictions across the country are confronted with a growing number of people with behavioral health needs in prisons and jails, correctional and reentry programs can provide important services and supports to address these needs and prevent future contact with the criminal justice system.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is accepting applications for funding under the Second Chance Act to enhance corrections systems’ ability to address the substance use treatment needs of people who are incarcerated as well as expand education and employment programs that emphasize strong partnerships with corrections, parole, probation, education, workforce development, and reentry service providers.

Register for the solicitation webinar on May 25, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. ET to learn more. BJA staff will provide an overview of program funding opportunities and requirements.

Applications are due July 6, 2021.
