Category 1: Young Fathers and Their Children Eligible applicants are limited to nonprofit organizations (including faith-based, tribal, and community nonprofit organizations) and federally recognized Indian tribes, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior, to provide comprehensive reentry support services, including mentoring, that will help justice-involved young fathers reintegrate into their communities and that address the purpose and goals listed in this solicitation.

Category 2: Young Mothers and Their Children Eligible applicants are limited to nonprofit organizations (including faith-based, tribal, and community nonprofit organizations) and federally recognized Indian tribes, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior, to provide comprehensive reentry support services, including mentoring, that will help justice-involved young mothers reintegrate into their communities and that address the purpose and the goals listed in this solicitation.

However, one eligible entity must be the applicant, and the others must be proposed as subrecipients.

The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire project.
