CARLTON COUNTY, Minn. — The Second Chance Act Addressing the Needs of Incarcerated Parents and Their Minor Children program grant comes from the U.S. Department of Justice and was given to the county in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Health, according to the county newsletter.

The three-year grant awarded $127,267 to the jail, which will provide funding for the temporary position of a family liaison within the family-friendly jail initiative, as well as additional staff training and resources.

It works to connect inmates to their family members, as well as to other community resources such as district schools.
