DOJ BJA issued its new Second Chance Act Comprehensive Community-Based Adult Reentry Program FY 2017 Competitive Grant Announcement. Only community and faith-based organizations are eligible to apply. Collaboration is encouraged and partnerships with a prison or jail and a community corrections agency is required.
Applications Due: July 5, 2017
Eligible applicants are limited to nonprofit organizations (including tribal nonprofit organizations) with a documented history of providing comprehensive, evidence-based reentry services, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior). 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”).1 The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering the funding and managing the entire program. Under this solicitation, only one application by any particular applicant entity will be considered. An entity may, however, be proposed as a subrecipient (“subgrantee”) in more than one application. 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.
