Meeting the Housing Needs of Formerly Incarcerated and Justice-Involved People

Stable housing is the foundation for successful reentry from prisons and jails and to public safety. HUD is working to improve access to HUD’s housing programs for formerly incarcerated and justice-involved people, as well as help communities meet the housing needs of people returning to the community from prison and jail.

This webpage includes recent guidance, communication, and resources related to improving access to HUD programs for people with criminal records and creating housing opportunities for formerly incarcerated people.
