Grants to USA and territories government agencies to expand services for incarcerated parents with children under the age of 18. Applicants are advised to create or verify required registrations well in advance of the deadline date. Funding is intended to support family engagement strategies that promote communication and support reentry.

This program will provide funding to support states and units of local government to develop programs within detention or correctional facilities to respond to the needs of incarcerated parents who have children younger than age 18. This program supports activities that foster positive family engagement between incarcerated parents and their children within detention and correctional facilities, and implement programs and services that support the children of incarcerated parents to reduce the likelihood of antisocial behaviors and future involvement in the juvenile justice system.

The goal of this program is to assist states and localities in developing or expanding services that meet the needs of incarcerated parents and their minor children to prevent violent crime, reduce recidivism, and provide support for minor children.

Program objectives include:

  • Provide support to facilities for staffing, equipment, tools, and resources to create child-friendly spaces.
  • Develop safety protocols and procedures for children who are visiting their incarcerated parents.
  • Develop a coordinated system for the provision of programs and services that support the needs of incarcerated parents and their children.

Program deliverables include:

  • Implement strategies that strengthen the relationships between incarcerated parents and their children while maintaining safe facilities.
  • Provide services that meet the needs of children of incarcerated parents.
  • Provide reentry and transitional services for incarcerated parents that focus on parental responsibility.
