The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), through its administration of the National Reentry Resource Center, is inviting letters of interest from organizations that are interested in providing technical assistance to employers to support the hiring of people with criminal records.

BJA is dedicating $500,000 over the course of one year to support the delivery of technical assistance to employers. For the purpose of this project, technical assistance includes creating model hiring and human resource practices and policies; promoting peer learning opportunities through conferences, meetings, and webinars; and developing best or promising practices to track and compare data on employees with and without criminal records.
