FULTON COUNTY RE-ENTRY TASK FORCE | Print |

Board Established by: County

Description:

The Board of Commissioners, by Resolution (#09-0571, 6/3/09), established the Reentry Task Force to examine ways to pool resources and funding streams to promote lower recidivism, to collect data and best practices in reentry from agencies and organizations, to develop a reentry strategic plan, and to otherwise aid in the development of a Reentry Demonstration Project, pursuant to the provisions of the Second Chance Act.


In April of 2008, President George W. Bush signed the Second Chance Act into law. In March of 2009, President Barack Obama appropriated $25 million in funding the Act, and requested an additional $100 million in 2010. The Second Chance Act authorizes funding to government agencies and nonprofit organizations to provide employment assistance, substance abuse treatment, housing, family programming, mentoring, victims support, and other services that can help reduce recidivism and violations of probation and parole. Through this Act, eligible agencies may apply for funding for Demonstration Projects that promote the safe and successful reintegration of individuals who have been incarcerated. In order to apply for funding, governmental applicants must have the support of the governmental unit; evidence of collaboration with state and local agency stakeholders overseeing health, housing, child welfare, education, substance abuse, employment services, victims services, and local law enforcement; and an established reentry task force.
