FY2018 Planning and Implementation Guide for Second Chance Act Innovations in Supervision Initiative Grantees

This guide prepared by the National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) is intended to support recipients of Second Chance Act Innovations in Supervision Initiative: Building Capacity to Create Safer Communities grants funded by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). It is not intended to serve as a step-by-step blueprint for developing a reentry program, but rather to foster discussion on best practices, identify considerations for collaborative efforts, and help programs work through key decisions and implementation challenges. Although the guide was developed as a tool for Second Chance Act grantees, its exercises and supporting resources may be helpful for other reentry programs.

Administered by the DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Second Chance Act grants support state, local, and tribal governments and nonprofit organizations in their work to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for people returning from incarceration. Planning and Implementation Guides for other Second Chance Act grant programs can be found on the NRRC’s technical assistance page.
