Transition from Jail to Community Phase 2 Application Available Now
The National Institute of Corrections and the Urban Institute are pleased to solicit applications for six new Transition from Jail to Community (TJC) Initiative sites. The TJC Initiative is a model approach for jails and local communities to collaboratively address the reentry challenges faced by individuals returning from jail, in order to enhance public safety and improve reintegration outcomes. Beginning in September 2012, the six selected jurisdictions will receive TJC technical assistance over two and a half years. The application for prospective sites is available now on the TJC project website (www.jailtransition.com) and submissions are due on June 30, 2012. The website also provides background on the program and sets forth the requirements for jurisdictions to be considered for selection as one of the new TJC sites.
There will be a webinar for prospective applicants on June 7, at 2 pm EDT. Details on joining the webinar are also available in the application materials and on the TJC website.
