Office of Justice Programs Awards $62 Million To Support Reentry Programs

December 2, 2013

On November 14, 2013, Attorney General Eric Holder announced more than $62 million in grants to strengthen adult and youth reentry programs and reduce recidivism at the state, tribal, and local levels. The grants—administered by the Office of Justice Programs' Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and Bureau of Justice Assistance—are part of the Attorney General's "Smart on Crime" initiative. They will support programs helping adults and youth to return to their communities through probation projects, substance abuse/mental health treatment, mentoring, and technology training.
