Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $523,700)

The Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program supports states, local governments, and tribal governments in partnership with interested persons (including Federal corrections and supervision agencies), service providers, and nonprofit organizations to provide comprehensive reentry services for moderate to high-risk youthful offenders before, during, and after release from confinement.

The primary goals of this project are to decrease recidivism by 20 percent for youth transitioning back to their communities after secure confinement, and to increase the capacity of Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) staff to meet the needs of youth transitioning out of secure confinement and returning to community supervision. Objectives will be further refined during the planning phase of the grant, and DJJ will use a reentry task force to develop plans addressing public safety, information-sharing practices, coordinated and comprehensive services, and family strengthening practices; improve community linkages to needed services; and track data on recidivism rates. Alaska DJJ will assess current reentry practices, policies, and models; identify system gaps; engage stakeholders; and identify evidence-based practices that can be used to address these gaps in the geographic challenges of Alaska.
