Resource centers will be funded to help state, tribal, and local juvenile defense systems enhance the quality of legal representation, leverage resources, and collect and analyze data to measure the effectiveness of services.

Category 3:
Second Chance Act- Juvenile Reentry Legal Services.

This program will provide grants to community based non- profit organizations to provide direct civil legal services, mentoring and reentry planning to justice involved youth that are transitioning or have recently transitioned back to their families and communities following secure confinement or out-of-home placement by providing the youth with direct civil legal services, mentoring and collective advocacy strategies to address the collateral consequences of justice-system involvement and overcome barriers to securing housing, education, and employment in order to reduce recidivism.
