DOJ, HUD Award Grants To Support Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program

June 28, 2016

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have made available approximately $1.75 million in grants for the Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program. The grants, funded through DOJ's Second Chance Act funds, will reduce barriers to public housing, employment, and education for justice-involved youth who are transitioning to the community. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and HUD Secretary Julián Castro announced the Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program grantees—18 public housing authorities—during National Reentry Week in April 2016. The program is a response to recommendations from the President’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force and the White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable.
