Technical Assistance and Support Service to Improved Reentry Demonstration Grantees

The vast majority of the approximately 10,000 individuals returning to the community from prison each week lack the education and skills for even entry-level employment. Research from the Department of Justice indicates a link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime. Those re-entering the community after incarceration face a system of silos between corrections, education and the workforce system. This contract seeks to support reentry education models based on the best available evidence and theory and building on Department work in this area.
