Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program
The Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program offers grants to provide reentry services and programs for youth with the goals of reducing recidivism and improving outcomes for youth returning to their communities after detention or out-of-home placement.
Grants will be awarded in 2 categories:

- Substance use disorder treatment and services
- Coordinated services, including physical healthcare and comprehensive housing and mental healthcare
- Family services
- Validated assessment tools to assess risk factors of returning youth
