DOJ, HUD Award Grants To Expand Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program

​The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have awarded an additional $300,000 in Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program grants to advance housing, jobs, and educational opportunities for justice-involved youth. The grants, which were funded through DOJ's Second Chance Act program, were awarded to four public housing authorities in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio in partnership with local nonprofits experienced in providing legal services to youth. In April, DOJ and HUD awarded $1.75 million to 18 public housing authorities and their partners to help justice-involved youth overcome barriers and secure education, jobs, and housing.
