Inmates are given a review when 17-19 months remain on their custody term. At that point, halfway house eligibility through the Second Chance Act is considered. Inmates may serve the last ten percent of their sentence (up to 6 months) at a halfway house/home incarceration. Inmates can serve half of this period at the halfway house and half of this period on home incarceration. Inmates may be found ineligible for halfway house placement for reasons such as poor institution adjustment, failure to pay toward the financial responsibility program, lack of participation in programming, failure to follow program recommendations, detainers, pending cases, or outstanding warrants.
