The Vera Institute of Justice is requesting proposals from public housing authorities (PHA) that would benefit from technical assistance to plan and implement reentry programs for people leaving prison or jail. The goals of the 14-month assistance program are to increase access to housing for people with conviction histories, improve the safety of public housing and surrounding communities through reentry housing strategies, and promote collaboration between housing authorities and other criminal justice stakeholders to reduce crime and improve reentry outcomes for those leaving prison. PHAs that manage their own units or administer a Housing Choice Voucher program are eligible, and neighboring housing authorities can choose to submit a single application. This initiative is through funding from the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). The deadline for applications is May 2.
