Grants to USA state, local, and federally-recognized tribal governments to implement housing service contracts that assist previously incarcerated individuals. Applicants are advised that completing required registrations may take several weeks. Funding may be used for reentry services for those with a moderate to high risk of recidivism and for services available to individuals living in permanent supportive housing units.
The purpose of this program is to assist local, state, and tribal governments in converting reentry and permanent supportive housing (PSH) service contracts into outcomes-based contracts in order to ensure accountability and improve performance with regard to recidivism reduction (categories 1 and 2) and increasing nights housed and emergency service savings (Category 2).
The initiative will provide assistance to price, write, negotiate, fund, and manage contracts that pay for these services in a way that ensures accountability of the contract service providers and incentivizes improved performance over time.
Priority consideration will be given to applicants that propose strategies to reduce violent recidivism among high-risk offenders, employ randomized control trial (RCT) methods to evaluate effectiveness, and propose to enhance public safety in qualified opportunity zones. All applicants will be judged on the totality of their proposals.
