Juvenile Re-Entry Assistance Program

United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Public and Indian Housing


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #164530

Grant Description

Grants starting at $10,000 to USA public housing authorities to help qualified juvenile offenders clear their records. Funds will be provided for public housing authorities that have established partnerships with legal aid organizations to assist: 1) current public housing resident youth up to 24 years old who have a criminal record and/or 2) former household members (who are youth up to 24 years old) of current public housing residents who, but for their criminal record, would be living in public housing.

Services provided must be in accordance with state law. In this program, expunging/sealing/correcting is not allowed for criminal records of makers of methamphetamine on public housing property, for criminal records of sex offenders on the lifetime sex offender registry, and for criminal records where the crime was domestic violence or a Part I Violent Crime.

Funds will be provided for:

1) Expunging/sealing/correcting juvenile and adult criminal records for the target youth, and

2) Providing other services that will assist the target youth to mitigate/prevent collateral consequences (e.g., development of collateral consequences checklists, dissemination of information/resources on collateral consequences, reinstate a driver’s license, etc.). Through this focus, JRAP aims to provide target youth with a second-chance at success, as originally intended by the establishment of the juvenile court, and as intended by the Second Chance Act. Through this program, target youth will have increased opportunities to pursue education, find work, and secure affordable housing.
