Clean Slate Clearinghouse Roundup

Recent news stories, publications, and resources

Featured Resources

The National Inventory of Collateral Consequences of Conviction, a web tool launched by the National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) and the CSG Justice Center, compiles thousands of state and federal statutes into a searchable database, making it easier to identify the regulations and restrictions that can be triggered by a particular conviction. In conjunction with the launch, the NRRC hosted a webinar to show potential users the site and its capabilities.

Featuring 21 stories from programs across 19 states, Reentry Matters profiles the impact of Second Chance Act grant-funded programs through both the practitioners who run them and the people who are impacted by them.
