Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA or territories state agency for a pilot program that addresses recidivism and mental illness. Funding is intended to provide opportunities for partnerships between criminal justice agencies and mental health or other agencies to reduce criminal activities of individuals with serious mental illness. The grant will be awarded to establish a collaborative prison anti-recidivism effort to provide comprehensive care before, during, and after incarceration.

Program-specific Information:

This grant initiative seeks to enhance services for individuals with serious mental illness in prisons by developing a pilot program that will establish a comprehensive service delivery plan focusing on the therapeutic, educational, vocational, cognitive-behavioral, and other mental health treatment needs of prison inmates from intake or arrest through their probationary or parole periods. 

BJA will make one award to pursue the following objectives:

  • Ensure that individuals with serious mental illness receive comprehensive care before, during, and after incarceration with a focus on recidivism reduction to include addressing their mental health and wellness needs, including addressing long-term assistance such as mental and health care in the community.
  • Assemble a team that has the authority to implement the required elements of the program, including the decisionmaking authority to assess and effectively intervene with the target population. 

The required deliverables are:

  • A comprehensive project work plan that will inform development of the project that incorporates the pilot program objectives and meets the objectives described under Objectives and Deliverables
  • Letters of commitment from external agencies or organizations that are expected to participate in the program, to the extent that letters of support are not already provided with the proposal
  • Demonstration of executive support and commitment of agency resources to the program (e.g., the anticipated roles and level of involvement of agency leadership in the project)
  • A final analysis as part of the closeout report to BJA prior to the end of the grant based on the process, intervention, outcomes, and lessons learned.
