§ Any informational and educational materials distributed in correctional facilities about housing options available to inmates post-release.

RESPONSE: Please find enclosed the Personal Reentry Planning Workbook for inmates being released from one of our Level IV facilities, the I-ADAPT Initiative resources given to inmates preparing for release for inmates who participate in this program and additional resources being provided re: housing to inmates. Not used statewide but are examples of types of resources being used.

§ Any currently valid policies/procedures detailing Department reentry services specific to accessing housing options post-release.

RESPONSE: Please find DOC Policy 3.12 Offender Reentry and BOP Policy 3.37 Reentry & I-ADAPT in response to this request.

§ Any statistical reports detailing admission and release trends from between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

RESPONSE: The DOC annual report (listed online) contains data through 6/30/18, which ends FY17. You can find admission and release data there. The report can be viewed at http://www.doc.delaware.gov/assets/documents/annual_report/DOC_2017AnnualReport.pdf .

§ Any statistical reports regarding inmates' housing status prior to and following commitment to the Department from between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.
