Second Chance Act

First enacted in 2008 and fully funded by December 2009, the “Second Chance Act” provided substance abuse treatment, counseling, employment assistance, housing assistance, family programming, and community resources to recovering ex-offenders to help them successfully reenter society and reduce recidivism.

The Second Chance Reauthorization Act of 2013 was entered into Congress in Nov. 2014, but was not enacted.
