Office of Justice Programs Announces Nearly $70 million To Support Reentry

The Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) recently announced nearly $70 million in grant funding to help communities address public safety by supporting successful reentry of adult and juvenile offenders into their communities. OJJDP has released the Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program funding opportunity to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth. OJJDP also supports reentering youth through programs and resources, including "Reentry Starts Here: A Guide for Youth in Long-Term Juvenile Corrections and Treatment Programs."

"The high rate of recidivism poses a dire threat to community safety and is being met with a robust response by this Administration," said OJP Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Katharine T. Sullivan.

Visit the funding page for details about other OJJDP funding opportunities. To learn more about open OJP funding opportunities to support reentry, visit the OJP funding website.
