The Community Foundation in Prince George’s County is pleased to announce the launch of Back on Track Prince George’s County (BOT-PGC) a new program developed by the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office (PGSAO). Back on Track is a diversion program focused on reducing recidivism among first-time, nonviolent felony drug offenders. The target population is 18 to 26 year old male and female defendants who have no prior felonious or violent convictions. Eligible participants will be given the opportunity to opt into a 12-18 month program, designed to connect individuals to a career pathway to economic security that links education and training, helps secure life sustaining wage jobs, and helps participants meet their civic obligations. After the successful completion of the program, participants will have the opportunity to have the offense for which they are charged, removed from his/her record permanently.
The PGSAO seeks a nonprofit partner for the pilot of BOT-PGC to provide case management, mentoring, job placement services, and alumni support. Please review all contents of the Request for Proposals (RFP) including the program overview and scope of work to understand the responsibilities of the nonprofit partner and to apply for funding.
