[RECORDING] Funding Opportunity: FY 2023 Second Chance Act Community-Based Reentry Program Webinar
April 13, 2023
In this webinar, representatives from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Corrections and Community Engagement Technical Assistance Center (CCETAC) review BJA's FY 2023 Second Chance Act Community-Based Reentry Program solicitation.
Through this opportunity, BJA seeks applications for funding from community-based nonprofit organizations and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance or implement evidence-based responses to improve reentry, reduce recidivism, and support successful transitional planning for individuals who are currently, or were formerly, involved in the criminal justice system.
The webinar covers the purpose of the Second Chance Act and Community based Reentry grant funding, who is eligible to apply, mandatory goals, objectives, and deliverables, and an explanation of the grant cycle including the amount of the award and period of performance. Additionally information is shared pertaining to use of funds, unallowable use of funds, BJA priorities, data collection, evaluation components, budget guidance, the two-step application process, required application elements, selection criteria, and recommended resources that may be helpful as you write your proposal.
