Responding to the 2018 Second Chance Act Innovations in Reentry Initiative Solicitation

Past Event
June 6, 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, representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the National Reentry Resource Center explain the Innovations in Reentry Initiative (IRI) and application process.

The purpose of the FY18 IRI: Reducing Recidivism Through Systems Improvement program is to provide local jurisdictions and Native American tribal governments with the resources, training, and technical assistance necessary to identify assets and gaps in their local reentry systems. Grantees will also develop capacity and partnerships with other justice agencies to provide services that prevent recidivism, reduce crime, and improve public safety in their jurisdictions.

BJA expects to make up to eight awards of up to $1,000,000 each, including up to $200,000 for the initial 12-month planning period and up to $800,000 for the 24-month implementation period. Grants will be awarded in the following two categories:

  • Category 1: Units or components of county or local government agencies serving adults.
  • Category 2: Units or components of federally recognized Native American tribes and Alaska Native tribes serving adults.
