- Re-Entry Demonstration Projects for Young Adults: FOA-ETA-16-06
This Reentry Demonstration Projects for Young Adults Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) provides the opportunity for organizations to build a customized project built on evidence-based and informed interventions. These projects will serve young adults between the ages of 18 to 24 who have been involved in the juvenile or adult justice system and reside in high-poverty, high-crime communities. The focus of this initiative is to assist communities in planning and implementing comprehensive "reentry" programs to address the full range of challenges involved in helping young offenders released from incarceration make a successful transition back to the community. The intent of this initiative is to protect community safety through the successful reintegration of offenders returning to the community by ensuring that offenders: • become productive, responsible, and law-abiding citizens; • are provided with positive opportunities to engage in pro-social activities such as employment or education; • maintain long-term employment; • sustain a stable residence; and • successfully address their substance abuse issues and mental health needs.
