Reintegration of Ex-Offenders - Adult Program Grants: The Employment and Training Administration ("ETA"), U.S. Department of Labor ("Department"), announces the availability of $11.7 million dollars to serve adult ex-offenders returning to their communities. The Department expects to award approximately 10 grants of approximately $1,170,000 each for a 27-month period of performance. Grants will be awarded to faith-based and community organizations (FBCOs) to provide pre-release and post-release services to ex-offenders returning to high-poverty, high-crime communities. These services will include job training and employment preparation, mentoring, and assistance connecting to supportive services such as housing, substance abuse programs, and mental health treatment. Specifically, the employment component of the grant will focus on the development of employment opportunities in in-demand occupations, including emerging "green" jobs. Applicants must describe their community's need for reentry services and the degree to which reentry is an issue; describe their program's design to provide services to adult ex-offenders that will result in employment in in-demand industries, including "green" jobs; and provide evidence of partnerships with the criminal justice system, local Workforce Investment Boards and One-Stop Career Centers, the local public housing authority and other providers of housing services, and mental health and substance abuse treatment service providers.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Recipients of these grants will be non-profit faith-based and community organizations ("FBCOs") that are located in or have existing staff presence in the high-poverty, high-crime area to be served. This grant focuses on high-poverty, high-crime areas that are heavily impacted by a large proportion of ex-offenders returning each year and which experience high rates of recidivism. A single application may be submitted to serve multiple sites. However, applicants must demonstrate that they have an existing organizational presence in each of the identified geographic areas to be served. The application may not be for more than $1,170,000, with additional funding for multiple sites coming from other leveraged resources if DOL funding does not fully cover the cost of operating a multi-site grant. Previous recipients of RExO - Adult grants are eligible for this solicitation.
