Abstract
This publication was produced by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to provide information on BJA strategies that can be used to support tribes and States interested in implementing effective reentry procedures and processes for Native Americans. The strategies encourage coordination between Federal, State, and tribal partners to support cultural programming, reentry, and safety planning for recently released tribal members. TTA (training and technical assistance) grants available from the BJA to assist tribes interested in planning or implementing a tribal reentry program are highlighted in this publication. Additional sources of funding available from the BJA include CTAS (Consolidated Tribal Assistance Solicitation) strategic planning funding, CTAS Tribal Justice Systems funding, Second Chance Act funding, and funding from the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation program. Funding from the BJA can also be used to support resource webinars and other planning mechanisms.
