  Abstract: This report from the Council of State Governments Justice Center presents information on the strategies and successes of Second Chance Act grantees. The Second Chance Act was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2008. This legislation authorizes the use of Federal grants to support reentry programs for adults and juveniles through the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs. To date, almost 600 government agencies and nonprofit organizations have received funding through this program. This report highlights the following recipients that have received funds and implemented successful programs: the New York City Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator – Harlem Parole Reentry Court; Ottawa County, Michigan’s West Shoreline 2nd Chance Connections program; the Comprehensive Community Cross-System Reentry Support Project run by the Department of Human Services in Oakland, CA; the New Haven Reentry Initiative run by the Connecticut Department of Corrections; the Springfield Community Mentoring Project, Springfield, MA; the Co-occurring Program at Minnesota Correctional Facility – Lino Lakes, run by the Minnesota Department of Corrections; the Ohio Department of Youth Services; the Gang Intervention Treatment: Reentry Development for Youth program in Harris County, TX; Project Reconnect in Tulsa, OK, run by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma; the Family Supports for Treatment and Reentry Success: Center for Family Success in Multnomah County, OR; and the Wisconsin Tribal Community Reintegration Program run by the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin. 28 notes
