August 8, 2019
The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is requesting comments on the Adult Reentry Grant Program – Rehabilitation of Existing Property and Building Draft Request for Proposals (RFP). The Adult Reentry Grant Program was established in the Budget Act of 2018 (Senate Bill 840, Chapter 29, Statute of 2018). The grant program is aimed at providing support to individuals formerly incarcerated in state prison. SB 840 dedicated $15,000,000 for the rehabilitation of existing property or buildings for housing people released from prison.
Eligible applicants are Community-Based Organizations located in the State of California that have been determined by the IRS to have 501(c)(3) status (i.e., nonprofit). To expedite the release of a final solicitation for this project we welcome comments from potential applicants to make sure the draft RFP is clear and understandable on any technical or substantive areas. Comments will be used to further improve the RFP in its final draft which is anticipated to go before the Board for approval to release on September 12, 2019.
Written Comment Period
Any interested person, or his or her authorized representative, may submit written comments relevant to the draft RFP proposed by the BSCC. The written comment period closes at 5:00 PM on September 3, 2019. The BSCC will consider only comments received at BSCC offices by that time.
