When an ex-convict makes his way back into the real world after completing his sentence, he looks forward to starting a new life. At such times, it is rather important that he is provided with the right kind of assistance.
It needs to be ensured that he is capable of supporting himself in this new life so that he does not return to a life of crime and he does not end up at the same place from where he had started. It is for this purpose that grants for felons are introduced.
When an ex-convict steps into the world outside prison, he needs to seek some form of employment. He could either attain formal employment or perhaps start a business, which would prove to be a better option in most cases.
