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.
Using data from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, South Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, this infographic highlights reductions in three-year reincarceration rates as reported by state corrections agencies.
The National Inventory of Collateral Consequences of Conviction–a web tool launched by the 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.
This infographic explains the urgent need for corrections agencies to examine how they administer risk and needs assessments in an effort to ensure they can confidently rely upon the results and avoid the pitfalls of poor implementation.
