Reentry 2030 Update: North Carolina Launches!

Reentry 2030 just launched in its third state, North Carolina! In partnership with the CSG Justice Center and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance, North Carolina plans to further its commitment to Reentry 2030’s foundational goals of successful reintegration for every person by launching a Joint Reentry 2030 council; increasing educational and employment opportunities; expanding access to behavioral health services, substance use disorder treatment, and Medicaid; and expanding housing opportunities for people returning from incarceration.

Stay tuned for upcoming editions of the Justice Briefing newsletter to learn more about other states that have launched their participation in Reentry 2030!

Additionally, the program saved Pennsylvania taxpayers $2.75 million through decreased costs.
