As part of this program, BJA will award planning grants of $200,000 to as many as six applicants to develop strategic plans that are comprehensive, collaborative, and multi-systemic in their approach to increasing public safety by reducing recidivism and improving the employability of people returning to communities after incarceration.
State correctional agencies, state administrative agencies (SAAs), and federally recognized Native American tribes are eligible to apply for funding as lead applicants; partnerships with community correctional agencies, workforce development agencies, and other entities are encouraged.
Speakers on the webinar will discuss:
- The goals of the grant program;
- Required components and deliverables of the grant program;
- Tips for writing a successful grant application; and
- Opportunities for awardees to compete for two-year implementation grants of up to $1,000,000 each.
