OJJDP's Second Chance Act Youth Reentry Program encourages collaboration between state agencies, local government, and community- and faith-based organizations to address the challenges that reentry and recidivism reduction pose for moderate- to high-risk youth returning to their communities from juvenile residential or correctional facilities.

This program will provide funding to support states, units of local government, and community-based organizations to develop programs to provide comprehensive reentry services for moderate- to high-risk youth before, during, and after release from confinement; support transitional services to assist youth's successful reintegration into the community; deliver relevant training to key stakeholders positioned to impact youth's reentry process; and support a robust training and technical assistance program. 

This solicitation provides funding for three categories: 

  • Category 1: Improving Youth Reentry
  • Category 2: Strengthening Community-Based Youth Reentry Programs
  • Category 3: Youth Reentry Training and Technical Assistance
