and the community.

With this solicitation, BJA seeks to support prisons and state correctional agencies that are working to transform their cultures, climates, and spaces to create safe, humane, and effective environments for people who work, visit, and are incarcerated in them; to recruit and retain qualified staff; and to make and sustain needed changes to better promote the successful reintegration of individuals returning from incarceration to their communities.

In Category 1, BJA seeks to fund a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider to help prisons and state correctional agencies assess and transform their culture, climate, and spaces to improve outcomes including staff recruitment, training, retention, and wellness; the design of spaces and the structure of people’s time to prepare them for reintegration into their communities; and strategies that will promote and sustain these changes.

In Category 2, BJA seeks to fund a provider who will develop, manage, and promote a website with curated resources that will advance knowledge around prison operations.

This website will be a landing space for resources developed under Category 1 as well as other BJA-supported work including Officer Safety and Wellness, Corrections Data Analysis, and Restrictive Housing Reform Implementation Assistance.
