The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), has awarded approximately $1.75 million dollars to assist youth and young adults with a juvenile or criminal record access jobs, education, and housing. This funding is released under the Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP), which provides a broad range of support services, such as legal rights counseling, to young adults under the age of 24 previously involved in the juvenile or criminal justice system.

The JRAP works directly with Public Housing Authorities and nonprofit legal services to serve justice-involved youth and young adults that are reintegrating in their communities. The Housing Authority of the City of Hartford, in collaboration with the Center for Children’s Advocacy Inc., has been awarded $100,000 to help Connecticut’s justice-involved young adults.
