What is HARP?

The Health and Reentry Project (HARP) is a cross-sector initiative to improve the health of people returning to communities after leaving jails and prisons. HARP works to achieve stronger policy and practice at the intersection of the health care and criminal justice systems by building bridges across sectors and stakeholders. Our goal is to improve the health, safety, and wellbeing of people and communities.
