Carlette Duffy is the Director of Re-entry for the City of Indianapolis and the Office of Public Health and Safety (OPHS), and she spoke with WFYI's Terri Dee about a pilot program that offers some formerly incarcerated people financial coaching to get on their feet.

It uses CARES Act funding for people adversely impacted by the pandemic. That includes people who have been moved from incarceration to electric monitoring at home, to implement social distancing.

The financial coaching program runs through Marion County Community Corrections and ends on December 31.
