Past Event
November 8, 2018, 8:00 am

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance

 

During this webinar, recipients of 2018 Second Chance Act (SCA) Adult Reentry and Employment Strategic Planning grants received information on the requirements and deliverables of the program. Specifically, grantees learned how they will develop a strategic plan that is comprehensive, collaborative, and multisystemic in its approach to increase economic mobility and reduce recidivism for people returning to the community from incarceration. Grantees also learned about the expectations set by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) as well as how to work with their National Reentry Resource Center technical assistance provider (TA provider) to complete their planning guide. TA providers and representatives from BJA will be on hand to answer questions and discuss resources that are available to grantees.

Panelists:

  • Andre Bethea, Policy Advisor, Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Greg Halls, Policy Analyst, Reentry & Employment Program, CSG Justice Center
  • Sherri Moses, Policy Analyst, Reentry & Employment Program, CSG Justice Center
