Community-based Reentry Program

Through this program, the Bureau of Justice Assistance supports organizations and tribal governments providing comprehensive reentry services to individuals who have been incarcerated. Prior to release from incarceration, individuals will be screened, assessed, and identified for program participation. Following release from incarceration, participants will receive case management services and be connected to evidence-based programming designed to ensure that the transition from prison or jail to the community is safe and successful.

This solicitation is part of the SCA suite of programs in FY 2022.
