Demetrius Somerville was a recent recipient of a privately funded grant of $3,000 for people leaving incarceration. He spoke at the Colorado State Capitol on Monday, Jan. 29, 2024, in support of a measure to provide similar grants from public dollars for thousands more people leaving jail or prison. (Andrew Kenney/CPR News)

"Somerville once had a promising college basketball career at George Mason University, but it was derailed by an injury and he later became involved in drug trafficking. In the decades since, he was incarcerated several times, including a seven-year federal prison term on drug charges and, more recently, a stint in jail for alleged violation of a restraining order stemming from a domestic dispute, he said.

Upon his release, he started working on a highway trash-cleaning crew through CEO. At the same time, he qualified for up to $3,000 from the prototype version of the reentry grant. He’s hopeful the extra money will help him break the cycle of recidivism.

'I was able to buy a car and that opened up a lot of doors for me,' he said. 'I was able to be there for my kids, seek more gainful employment, and also hopefully find a better job and get to that job.'

The nonprofit’s pilot program only has enough funding to serve about 100 people. If the state bill passes, it would provide tens of millions of dollars in funding to offer similar grants to thousands of people."
