OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community.The Second Chance Act (SCA) of 2007 (Public Law 110-199), reauthorized by the First Step Act of 2018, provides a comprehensive response to assist in the transition individuals make from prison, jail, or juvenile residential facilities to their communities so that the transition is more successful and promotes public safety. SCA and reentry-focused grant funding is designed to help communities develop and implement comprehensive and collaborative strategies that address the challenges posed by reentry and recidivism reduction. "Reentry" is not a specific program but rather an ongoing process that starts from the moment an individual is initially incarcerated and continues throughout that individual’s transition from incarceration and reintegration into the community.With this solicitation, BJA seeks to implement programming and services in response to the Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Act of 2020. It includes two categories for funding: Adult and Youth Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Programs—State and Local Governments Adult and Youth Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Programs—Nonprofit Organizations and Tribal Governments Please note that community-based nonprofit organizations, including culturally specific organizations, are eligible and encouraged to apply under Category 2 of this program in partnership with correctional agencies.
