Second Chance Act Solicitations Up for 2010

The Office of Justice Programs has issued a competitive grant announcement for Second Chance Act funding. Three of the six eligible categories of grantees are state juvenile justice agencies, county juvenile justice agencies and tribal juvenile programs.

OJP has not specified a minimum or maximum grant award in the announcement, but all grantees will be required to match the award with an equal amount of funds; that’s no small feat given the budgetary circumstances in most states. Only half of the state’s share has to be cash, the other 25 percent of a project’s total funds can be in-kind contributions.

The grants can be used for: developing actuarial-based assessment instruments for reentry planning, targeting “criminogenic needs that affect recidivism,” providing case planning/management in the community and supporting services for offenders.

The deadline to register for the grants is March 4. Click here for details.
