‘Second Chance’ grants available

The US Office of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention’s Second Chance Juvenile Mentoring Initiative is offering awards of up to $625,000 per award for up to 3 years to provide employment assistance, substance abuse treatment, housing, family programming, mentoring, victims support, and other services to help adult and juvenile ex-offenders make a successful transition from incarceration to the community.

In support of the goals of the Second Chance Act, OJJDP will provide grants to support mentoring and other transitional services essential to reintegrating juvenile offenders into the community. The grants will be used for mentoring juvenile offenders during confinement, through transition back to the community, and post-release; transitional services to assist the reintegration of youth offenders into the community; and training in offender and victims issues.
