Idaho’s Transition Funding Program provides funding for individuals transitioning out of the correctional system who need housing to improve their ability to develop viable release plans, which can help prevent recidivism. Funds may be used to assist with payment for up to 30 days of housing and living expenses. Typically, funds provided will be the minimum amount necessary to establish residence, but will not exceed $1500 per person. To be eligible, applicants must have a tentative parole date, lack a viable parole plan, have less than $500 in assets, and must not be designated as a Violent Sexual Predators. If on community supervision, they must be at risk of becoming homeless.
Idaho’s Transition Funding Program’s funding sources consist of general, dedicated, and federal grant funds administered through the state. In FY12, $395,000 was allocated by the state of Idaho through the budget appropriations process.
