Reducing Recidivism: States Deliver Results (2018)
Reducing Recidivism: States Deliver Results from the National Reentry Resource Center and the CSG Justice Center profiles 11 states that have experienced impressive declines in their return-to-prison rates since recidivism was at its most recent peak in each state. Using the most up-to-date data from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, South Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, the infographic highlights three-year reincarceration rates as reported by state corrections agencies. It also details how Second Chance Act grant awards have helped the 11 featured states to test recidivism-reduction strategies, invest in evidence-based practices, and increase the capacity and scale of programs. Since 2009, the Second Chance Act has provided more than 900 grants across 49 states, impacting more than 160,000 people. Those people and programs are highlighted in Reentry Matters: Strategies and Successes of Second Chance Act Grantees, another publication from the National Reentry Resource Center and the CSG Justice Center. The brief highlights 21 stories from programs across 19 states, all of which are funded by the Second Chance Act.
