Applications Now Available for New OCTAE Awards for Improved Reentry EducationPosted on 07/22/2015
Applications are now available for OCTAE's estimated nine new awards for its Improved Reentry Education (IRE) program authorized by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The average size of each award is $300,000. The IRE program supports demonstration projects in prisoner reentry education that show its effectiveness. According to the award notice, "IRE seeks to demonstrate the critical need for high-quality, appropriately designed, integrated, and well-implemented educational and related services in institutional and community settings," to support incarcerated individuals' education goals and reentry success.
Interested parties are encouraged to review the Federal Register notice for full details on the new awards, including application requirements, eligibility, award information, and key deadlines. The notice is also available via the Educational Grants area of the OTAN Web site.
