FY2020 Planning and Implementation Guide for Second Chance Act Programs Improving Reentry for Adults with Substance Use Disorders

This guide from The Council of State Governments Justice Center is intended to support recipients of Second Chance Act grants administered by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance. The guide is not intended to serve as a step-by-step blueprint, but rather to foster discussion on best practices, identify considerations for your collaborative effort, and help you work through key decisions and implementation challenges.

The planning and implementation guide is tailored to support grantees in developing and refining a reentry program for adults with substance use disorders that will reduce recidivism and support successful reentry and recovery.
