Grants to New Jersey nonprofit organizations, trade organizations, employers, labor organizations, placement agencies, community-based organizations, and faith-based organizations to increase the employment of parolees. The purpose of this program is to increase opportunities for parolees and significantly reduce the likelihood of recidivism.
The NJDOL, in collaboration with the State Parole Board (SPB), seeks to fund proposals that will provide placement services, on a fee-for-service basis, to parolees of the SPB.
There are over 15,000 offenders throughout New Jersey under the supervision of the SPB. The offender population has a much harder time returning to the workforce than other populations of job seekers. They often have multiple barriers to employment and require additional services and unique approaches to resolving issues. Research has shown that employment is a deterrent to recidivism.
The grantee will be responsible for providing job coaching and employment preparation, job placement, and tracking employment retention.
Case Management, Job Placement, and Employer Incentives: The lead agent will be responsible for coordinating case management services for parolees accepted into the program and assisting with placement and retention services. Costs for case management are included in the assessment, job coaching, and case management benchmark of the agreement. The lead agency will be responsible for the placement of the trainees into sustainable employment. In an effort to encourage employers to hire participants of PEPP, NJDOL may offer on-the-job training (OJT) to provide financial assistance to employers hiring participants of the program, depending on available funding. The OJT program will be administered separately from this NGO process and will not need to be included in your proposed budget. Detailed information will be provided and explained to applicants awarded through this NGO.
Grantees will be charged with ensuring that all participants of the PEPP are registered with the local One-Stop Career Centers (OSCC). The OSCC will ensure that all the appropriate resources are made available to the participants and that said participants are aware of any employer incentives available through the OSCC system.
