The LWD in collaboration with the State Parole Board (SPB) seeks to fund proposals that will provide placement services, on a fee-for-service basis, to parolees of the SPB.
There are over 19,000 offenders throughout New Jersey under the supervision of the SPB. The offender population has a much harder time returning to the workforce than other populations of job seekers. They often have multiple barriers to success and require additional services and unique approaches to resolving issues. Research has shown that employment is a deterrent to recidivism.
