Second Chance Act Adult Offender Reentry Demonstration Projects: Collaboration and Reentry Partnerships (2018)

Seven grantees were included in the Cross Site Evaluation of the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Fiscal Year 2011 Second Chance Act Adult Offender Reentry Demonstration Projects. Each project provided comprehensive reentry programming to criminal justice system involved adults under state or local custody before and after their return to the community. Target populations and service delivery approaches varied across sites. Each project, however, addressed the multiple challenges facing formerly incarcerated individuals upon their return to the community by providing an array of pre and post-release services, including education and literacy programs, job placement, housing services, and mental health and substance abuse treatment. Risk and needs assessments, transition case planning, and case management were key elements of grantees’ demonstration projects.
