Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $500,000)

The Congressionally Selected Awards Program, authorized by the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects selected by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-8, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 09 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY09 Omnibus Appropriations Act.

The Hampden County Sheriff's Department will implement the Integrated Re-entry Model to reduce recidivism through a seamless re-entry plan of supervision and services. The plan will be developed with each offender in collaboration with public and private criminal justice and human service agencies. This plan will occur from the first day of the offender being incarcerated. The Hampden County Sheriff's Department will provide offenders with transition, reintegration, and aftercare in the community. The goal is to improve recidivism rates by the continuous application of integrated programs and services.
