Past Event
April 27, 2021, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm, Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)

Around the country, many communities are facing a lack of affordable housing. People who have been involved with the justice system face additional barriers that make finding housing especially difficult. This webinar discusses how to integrate housing solutions into the reentry process. Key topics include identifying people at risk of homelessness in the justice system, coordinating with housing providers, and financing new housing opportunities.

The webinar features speakers from Clark County, Washington, to discuss efforts in their community to expand housing options for people reentering the community from jail.
