Dear Congressional staff,

Today, the Department of Labor will announce $12 million in grant awards to twenty-four faith-based and community organizations to assist ex-prisoners re-entering the community through an employment-centered program that incorporates job training, mentoring, and other supportive services. These Department of Labor funds are used to provide a variety of services, including workforce development services, job training, on-the-job training, work experience, basic skills remediation, counseling and case management, mentoring, and other reentry services.

Each grantee will receive $500,000 in fifth-year funding. This list of grantees is below. Please see the attached press release and fact sheet for more information about the Ex-Offenders initiative.

If you have any questions, please contact Adri Jayaratne (jayaratne.adri@dol.gov) or Laura MacDonald (macdonald.laura@dol.gov) in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs at 202-693-4600.

Thank you,
