With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks to fund state, local, and tribal governments to enhance or implement evidence-based activities or services to improve reentry and reduce recidivism by expanding and/or increasing access to housing for people who are currently or formerly involved in the criminal justice system. Prior to the release from incarceration, individuals will be screened, assessed, and identified for program participation. The program will help jurisdictions assess their reentry systems, identify strengths and gaps, and then build capacity for improved housing options for adults released from prison or jail.

Eligible Applicants:

  • State governments
  • City or township governments
  • County governments
  • Other units of local government, such as towns, boroughs, parishes, villages, or other general purpose political subdivisions of a state
  • Public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities
  • Native American tribal governments (federally recognized)

BJA held pre-recorded webinar to provide a detailed overview of this solicitation. The webinar recording is forthcoming.
