The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recently released the FY2014 solicitation for the Second Chance Act Two-phase Adult Reentry Demonstration Program. These grants will provide up to $750,000 to help state and local governments and federally recognized Indian tribes plan and implement programs and strategies to reduce recidivism and ensure the safe and successful reentry of adults released from prisons and jails.

Successful applicants will be required to complete two phases of work: a project-planning phase and, after BJA approval, a project-implementation phase. The initial award period will be 24 months, with the possibility of no-penalty extensions that will allow for the completion of both the planning and implementation phases. Up to six months of the total project period can be used to complete the planning process, with the remaining months used for implementing the project. To download this solicitation, click here.
