Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $100,000)

The Second Chance Act of 2007 provides a comprehensive response to the increasing number of people who are released from prison, jail and returning to communities, including resources to address the myriad of needs of these offenders to achieve a successful return to their communities.

The goal of the Second Chance Act Statewide Recidivism Reduction Strategic Planning Program is to assist state teams in developing strategic plans that are comprehensive, collaborative and multi-systemic. These plans address the challenges posed by reentry through various policies and/or procedural practices that are essential to a supportive and successful transition from state correctional facilities to the community, thereby reducing the state's recidivism rate and increasing public safety.

The grantee will use funds towards the Alaska's Department of Correction Coordinated Entry and Coordination of Care Model; a Proactive and Collaborative Approach in Reducing Recidivism and Improving Reentry Efforts. The goals of this program are to identify current limitations and barriers in existing strategic plan; create a draft strategic plan which outlines the strategies, roles and anticipated outcomes; develop practices and ensure protocols are in place for data collection; formalize the reentry task force through established Memorandum of Agreements; identify high risk/high need males within the set time frames of the project; review and revise as needed, policies and procedures; set baseline recidivism rate for target population; and reduce recidivism rates. This program will serve 50 adult male participants.
