Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP)
The Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP) helps to support successful transition to the community by reducing barriers to public housing, employment, and/or educational opportunities for target youth. Target youth under this program are current public housing resident youth up to 24 years old who have a criminal record and/or former household members (who are youth up to 24 years old) of current public housing residents who, but for their criminal record, would be living in public housing. JRAP, funded via an interagency agreement with the Department of Justice, provides funding to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) who have established a partnership with an experienced, nonprofit legal service organization.
