Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $1,000,000)

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center will provide training and technical assistance (TTA) to Second Chance Act Addressing the Needs of Incarcerated Parents and Their Minor Children grantees and to advance evidence-based practices to support families in the broader reentry field. The CSG Justice Center will work with grantees to develop, implement, and expand programs and initiatives that are culturally-responsive and family-centered and that reflect evidence-based practices and employ a racial equity lens. We will: 1) provide comprehensive support on planning and implementing programs and initiatives to improve outcomes for incarcerated parents and their children; and 2) elevate promising practices and lessons from grantees to other grantees, the broader reentry field, and policymakers to advance policies and practices that reduce recidivism and improve family outcomes.
