BJA FY 17 Statewide Recidivism Reduction Strategic Plan Implementation

You are here

The Statewide Recidivism Reduction Strategic Planning Program will provide $100,000 awards to State Departments of Correction to develop Planning & Implementation guides to serve as the basis for an application for funds to implement a comprehensive reentry program to effect a reasonable reduction in the documented statewide recidivism rate.

Funding Source: 
Bureau of Justice Assistance
Eligible Grantees: 

State governments

Eligible applicants are limited to state correctional agencies (state departments of corrections or community corrections) or State Administering Agencies (SAAs). Agencies from states that were awarded Second Chance Act Statewide Recidivism Reduction grants in fiscal year (FY) 2015 are NOT eligible to apply. BJA welcomes applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (“subgrantees"). The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering the funding and managing the entire project. BJA may elect to fund applications submitted under this FY 2017 solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
