The Second Chance Act Community-based Reentry Program supports organizations and tribal governments providing comprehensive reentry services to individuals who have been incarcerated.

With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance seeks applications for funding from community-based non-profit organizations and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance or implement evidence-based responses to improve reentry, reduce recidivism, and support successful transitional planning for individuals who are currently, or were formerly, involved in the criminal justice system.

Objectives for this program are to:

  • Develop comprehensive individualized case management plans that directly address criminogenic risks and needs, as identified by validated assessments/tools, and deliver or facilitate services in a manner consistent with participants’ learning styles and abilities.
  • Demonstrate increased collaborations between community-based organizations and corrections, community supervision, law enforcement, and other local reentry stakeholders.

Eligible Applicants:

  • Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized)
  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education

See the solicitation for additional opportunity and eligibility details, as well as directions on how to apply.
