The Young Offender Initiative: Reentry Grant Program



The deadline for applications to the Young Offender Initiative: Reentry Grant Program has been extended to Tuesday, October 9th. 

Applications must be received by the Office of Justice Programs no later than 5:30 pm. This extension will not delay the award process.

The Young Offender Initiative: Reentry Grant Program is intended to enhance safety through the successful reintegration to the community of offenders ages 14 to 35, who have been confined for a minimum of 12 consecutive months for adults or 6 consecutive months for juveniles. This is a joint program of the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor; Office of Justice Programs (OJP), U.S. Department of Justice; and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The programs will use a coordinated and comprehensive continuum of supervision, programs, and services to help members of the target population:

  • Become productive, responsible, and law-abiding citizens;  

  • Obtain and retain long-term employment;  

  • Maintain a stable residence; and  

  • Successfully address their substance abuse issues and mental health needs.

Approximately $79 million is available to fund approximately 25 grants of up to $3.1 million each to applicants that demonstrate a collaborative effort and broad-based community support. Applications are due by October 1, 2001. The solicitation is available on the Office of Justice Program's Web site, www.ojp.usdoj.gov, and information updates will continue to be posted on the Web site. If you do not have Internet access and wish to obtain a copy of the solicitation, please contact the DOJ Response Center at 1-800-421-6770 and they will mail you a copy as soon as possible.
