The prison population in the United States has been growing steadily for more than 30 years. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that since 2000, an average of 680,000 inmates have been released annually from state and federal prisons and almost 5 million ex-offenders are under some form of community-based supervision. Offender reentry can include all the activities and programming conducted to prepare ex-convicts to return safely to the community and to live as law-abiding citizens.

The federal government’s involvement in offender reentry programs typically occurs through grant funding, which is available through a wide array of federal programs at the Departments of Justice, Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services. However, only a handful of grant programs in the federal government are designed explicitly for offender reentry purposes. This book discusses the correctional statistics, reintegration of released offenders into communities, and recidivism. (Imprint: Novinka )
