Federal Funding

Request for Proposals: ​Justice Assistance Grants (JAG) Recidivism Reduction Grants

The MN JAG Recidivism Reduction grants seek to improve public safety by strengthening collaborative efforts between criminal justice, probation systems and social services to better serve youth and adults as they return to communities from correctional placements. The intent of this funding is to enhance access to services, supports and resources needed for offenders to succeed in the community. 

Applicants are expected to have working relationships between correctional facilities, probation systems, and community agencies so that grant funded reentry programming can begin during incarceration and continue with return to the community. Successful applicants will employ the Risk-Needs-Responsivity Model and will use validated risk assessment and case management tools.

Approximately $3 million in federal Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) funds may be available for two year grants ranging from about $100,000 to $300,000.
