OJJDP FY 2023 Second Chance Act Youth Reentry Program

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) seeks applications for funding that enhance collaboration between state agencies, local government agencies, Tribes, and community- and faith-based organizations to improve and address the challenges that reentry and recidivism reduction pose for youth assessed at a moderate to high risk of reoffending and who are returning to their communities from juvenile residential or correctional facilities. The FY 2023 Second Chance Act Youth Reentry Program also supports intensive assistance for jurisdictions working to improve their community supervision practices and build strong juvenile reentry data and performance measurement capacity. This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by supporting efforts to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth returning to their communities following confinement. 

This program will provide funding to support states, units of local government, and community-based organizations to develop programs to provide comprehensive reentry services for moderate- to high-risk youth before, during, and after release from confinement; support transitional services to assist youth’s successful reintegration into the community; deliver relevant training to key stakeholders positioned to impact youth’s reentry process; and support a robust training and technical assistance program. This solicitation provides funding for three categories—Category 1: Improving Youth Reentry, Category 2: Strengthening Community-Based Youth Reentry Programs, and Category 3: Youth Reentry Training and Technical Assistance.
