|By austintalks.org- Kendall Polidori|
State prison officials say “second chance” funding from the federal government has enabled them to help more than 300 people from Austin and six other communities reenter society after being incarcerated.
U.S. Rep. Danny K. Davis said he hopes to build on that funding provided through the Second Chance Act.
“We are celebrating the accomplishments that have been made,” Davis said at a press conference earlier this month held to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the federal legislation being signed into law.
