Second Chances, Safer Counties: Workforce Development and Reentry

Counties and local workforce development boards (WDBs) cooperate to provide workforce training services and assistance to residents, including adults and youth who were formerly involved with the justice system. This report from the National Association of Counties (NAC0) shares the results of a survey that NACo conducted–with support from the National Association of Workforce Boards–to better understand how county governments, including county jails, work with local WDBs on reentry programs and workforce development. In addition to the survey findings, the report features companion case studies of reentry and workforce development partnerships in four counties.
