The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking applications from state agencies to establish a collaborative anti-recidivism initiative to provide comprehensive care before, during, and after incarceration, with a goal of recidivism reduction, for individuals with serious mental illness. This program furthers the Department’s mission by providing support to state criminal justice agencies to partner with mental health agencies and other service agencies to reduce crime and recidivism associated with people with mental illness.
This grant initiative seeks to enhance services for individuals with serious mental illness in prisons by developing a pilot program that will establish a comprehensive service delivery plan focusing on the therapeutic, educational, vocational, cognitive-behavioral, and other mental health treatment needs of prison inmates from intake or arrest through their probationary or parole periods.
