Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $355,763)

The Second Chance Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-199) provides a comprehensive response to the increasing number of people who are released from prison and jail into communities and the subsequent challenges communities face as offenders attempt to reintegrate into society. The Second Chance Act Prisoner Reentry Initiative provides funding to state and local governments and federally recognized Indian tribes for demonstration projects to promote the safe and successful reintegration into the community of individuals who have been incarcerated. Funded demonstration projects will use validated and dynamic assessment tools to determine the risks and needs of offenders.
Projects will provide offenders in prisons or jails with all necessary services to facilitate reentry into the community. In addition, the projects will develop procedures to ensure that dangerous felons are not released from prison prematurely and provide services that address treatment needs and protect communities against dangerous offenders. Allowable uses of funds to enhance a successful transition include: pre-release assessment and case planning, mentoring, housing, education, substance abuse treatment, mental health treatment, services to enhance family reunification, job training and readiness, and post-release case management and supervision.

The Solano County Health and Social Services will use the FY 2010 grant funds for the Women's Reentry Achievement Program (WRAP). The Solano County will implement a demonstration program that will serve women incarcerated in or recently returned from the county jail or sate prison. The demonstration program will serve all of Solano County and participants must be pregnant and/or already have dependent children. The WRAP program will deliver comprehensive services such as childbirth preparation, smoking cessation classes, substance abuse and mental health services, transitional housing, childcare and transportation, peer mentoring and support groups.
