The Bureau of Justice Assistance, in partnership with the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA), has released a solicitation for applications to host an in-person, state-based Tribal Intergovernmental Reentry Workshop. This interactive workshop will provide participants with tools to develop effective reentry plans based on the sharing of operational, organizational, and culture-based concepts and processes that result in the identification of critical services and interventions needed to reduce recidivism and victimization.
The state-based workshop will be offered to interested tribes within a particular state that wish to develop a better understanding of the state department of corrections and Federal Bureau of Prisons recidivism reduction programming and reentry services to improve their own reentry strategy. Applicants for this workshop will need to demonstrate that their state department of corrections is willing to participate. This training will include interested tribes within a single state based on the selected applications. State participation will include representatives from institutional and community corrections agencies, courts, and pretrial services (if applicable). Federal representatives will include U.S. Probation, U.S. Attorney's Office, Bureau of Prisons, and Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The date and location for the state-based workshop will be determined once the successful applicant is selected through the competitive process.
Applications are due by December 1, 2023. Interested tribes are encouraged to collaborate with other tribes within their state to apply. If you have any questions, contact Mark A. Dyea with APPA at 859-721-3170 ext. 8176 or [email protected].
