Adult Reentry Grant Program
The Adult Reentry Grant Program was established through the Budget Act of 2018 (Senate Bill 840, Chapter 29, Statute of 2018) and appropriated $50,000,000 in funding for competitive awards to community based organizations (CBOs) to support offenders formerly incarcerated in state prison. The Budget Act requires that $25 million be available for rental assistance, $15 million for the rehabilitation of existing property or buildings for housing offenders released from prison, and $9.35 million to support the warm handoff and reentry of offenders transitioning from prison to communities. This grant is currently in development and awards are anticipated to be made by June 30, 2019
