Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $350,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), 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 recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, 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 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Hampden County Sheriff's Department will continue to support the Integrated Re-entry Model. This program aims to reduce recidivism by implementing a seamless re-entry plan of supervision and services developed with each offender, delivering programming from the first day of incarceration through transition, reintegration, and aftercare in the community. The continuous application of these programs and services is expected to promote public safety by reducing the threat of harm to persons and property by released offenders in the community. In addition, the grantee expects to increase the success rate of offenders who transition from jail to the community through effective risk management, educational and treatment interventions, offender accountability and community participation.
