For individuals who are reentering the community from incarceration, what are the recovery programs or services that promote the best long-term outcomes?
What barriers do underrepresented groups face upon reentry (e.g., LGBTQIA+ community, people of color)? How can recovery support services help overcome these?
What policies, procedures, or laws (agency or statewide) create barriers for people with a criminal record to build a recovery-supportive social network that may include other people with a criminal record?
How can recovery support services, like housing, coordinate with jails and prisons to create long-term treatment plans, seamless supports, and continuity of care for those returning to the community?
Are there best practices for improving recovery support services in prisons and jails (i.e., not typical video-based programming), and how might these be implemented well?
What are best practices for peer-delivered reach-in services within jails and prisons prior to release?
What are the benefits of virtual models for peer-delivered reach-in services within jails and prisons, for example, for matching people of similar backgrounds or for rural prisons?
How can peer support specialists effectively assist individuals with the shift from transitional housing to long-term housing, especially given the housing crisis that is felt more broadly?
