Purpose for Which Funds will be Used:
The purpose of this competitive Notice of Grant Opportunity (NGO) is to increase opportunities for the employment of parolees; and to reduce the likelihood of parolee recidivism.
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 15,000 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 employment and require additional services and unique approaches to resolving issues. Research has shown that employment is a deterrent to recidivism.
