Ex-Prisoner Reentry Strategies Study, 2011-2015

Project Overview

The Ex-Prisoner Reentry Strategies Study, being conducted by The Urban Institute, will document the implementation of selected reentry programs initially funded in FY 2011 under the Responsible Fatherhood grant program, the experiences of staff and participants, and lessons useful to others in the field. Additional work will involve evaluation design recommendations and a focus on measures appropriate for use in evaluations of programs with similar goals and objectives as these grant programs.

The points of contact are Lauren Supplee and Nicole Constance.
