Under the Pay for Success model, a government entity forms a partnership with a service provider that ties payment for services to reaching agreed-upon goals. This initiative provides funding to state, local, and tribal governments to price, write, negotiate, fund, and manage contracts that pay for reentry services in a way that ensures accountability of the contract service providers, and incentivizes improved performance over time.

With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks to provide funding to state, local, and tribal governments to use performance-based or outcomes-based contracting to enhance or implement clinical services and other evidence-based responses to improve reentry, reduce recidivism, and address the treatment and recovery needs of people with mental health, substance use, or co-occurring disorders who are currently involved in the criminal justice system or were formerly involved.

Funding Categories: 

  • Category 1: Performance-based and Outcomes-based Contracting for Reentry Services 
  • Category 2: Performance-based and Outcomes-based Contracting for Permanent Supportive Housing 

Eligible Applicants: 

  • State governments 
  • Special district governments 
  • City or township governments 
  • County governments 
  • Public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities 
  • Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized)

On April 4, 2024, BJA personnel hosted a webinar to provide details about this opportunity. Webinar materials are now available:
