Programs That Support Community Corrections
Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program
The JAG Program provides states, tribes, and local governments with critical funding necessary to support a range of program areas, including those that address correctional activities.
The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) has announced awards totaling more than $74.5 million to reduce recidivism among adults and youth returning to their community after confinement. View the press release to learn more about the grants awarded by BJA and other OJP bureaus and offices.
With support from BJA, the National Reentry Resource Center has released Mentoring as a Component of Reentry: Practical Considerations from the Field. This resource offers five broad, field-based considerations for incorporating mentoring into reentry programming for an adult population.
Innovations in Reentry Initiative (IRI) seeks to improve the capacity and effectiveness of state, local and tribal jurisdictions to identify innovative ways to increase the success rates of individuals returning to their communities and reduce the number of crimes committed by those recently returning.
The Innovations in Supervision Initiative (ISI) provides grants and assistance to states, units of local government, and federally recognized Indian tribes to develop, implement, and test innovative and evidence-based probation and parole practices.
