The Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance is making available up to $7.5 million under the Second Chance Act to support the transition of incarcerated individuals back into the community.
The funding opportunity is designed to support technology career training for incarcerated individuals – including those in state prisons, local jails, and juvenile residential facilities – for the purpose of helping individuals released transition into careers in a technology field. Eligible entities include states, territories, federally recognized tribes, and units of local governments.
DOJ anticipates awarding up to 10 awards of up to $750,000 each for a 12-month project period. Applications are due March 17, 2014.
