April is Second Chance Month

Second Chance Month (April) aims to inform and highlight the many opportunities for state, local, and tribal governments and community-based service providers to build meaningful second chances for people returning from incarceration.

Join the Bureau of Justice Assistance as we celebrate Second Chance Month and fifteen years of the Second Chance Act.

Read the White House proclamation and visit our Second Chance Month webpage for information, funding opportunities, and resources to learn about ways we can help prepare individuals for success when they return to their communities.
