In this webinar, officials from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance and the National Reentry Resource Center review the Second Chance Act Comprehensive Community-Based Adult Reentry grant program and its application process. These grants are designed to support community- and faith-based organizations in expanding on or implementing reentry programs that demonstrate strong partnerships with corrections, parole, probation, and law enforcement agencies or other reentry service providers. These grants are for a 48-month project period and are open to community-based, faith-based, and tribal nonprofit organizations, as well as tribal governments with a documented history of administering comprehensive, evidence-based reentry services.
