The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) administers general funds designated to support Prerelease and Post Incarceration Services (PAPIS) programs. Applications for continuation funding for Fiscal Year 2024 are being accepted.

This grant is intended specifically to facilitate case management, reentry planning, transitional housing, treatment, employment readiness, and employment placement for individuals returning to the community. In addition to providing resources for basic needs, programs should incorporate research-informed practices that target individual criminogenic risk factors and needs associated with recidivism.
