In 1979, the State Legislature passed a law authorizing the establishment of a Restitution Center Program for non-violent, non-sex offender inmates who are within one year of term expiration or parole eligibility. Through this program, these inmates are given the opportunity to establish employment in the community to better prepare them for release and to address court-ordered fees, fines, and restitution obligations. In October 1979, the Northern Nevada Restitution Center opened in Reno with four residents. In August 1987, the Northern Nevada Restitution Center had a maximum capacity of 48 male and 12 female residents. In April 1993, NNRC was moved to its last location and housed up to 103 inmates, male only. NNRC's last day of occupancy was on October 23, 2015.

In 2005, Assembly Bill 299 passed the Legislature, paving the way for a partnership with the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony and the Department of Corrections for a land swap between the two parties. Northern Nevada Transitional Housing is the product of that partnership.

Programs: Vocational Training, Educational Opportunities, and Treatment Services

Vocational Training includes all training authorized by the department that is available in the community. Educational opportunities include the pursuit of a GED, high school diploma, college certificates of achievement, and associate, baccalaureate and master's degrees. Treatment services can be utilized in the community, to include substance abuse counseling and AA/NA.

Vocational Training
More than 78% of inmates come to prison with minimal job training. Vocational skills are taught to Nevada inmates by the school districts and colleges, prison industries, and the Nevada Division of Forestry. Inmates can learn culinary skills, construction trades, animal science, fire-fighting, auto mechanics and restoration, business and management, equipment repair, HVAC installation and repair, welding, furniture manufacturing, dry cleaning, computer skills and more. Inmates may also get prison jobs as clerks, cooks, janitors, maintenance workers, landscapers, construction crews and other such positions that provide them on-the-job training.
Incentives for Inmates
Nevada law provides incentives for offenders to earn an education while incarcerated; among these incentives is the application of educational credits toward the reduction of sentences. An offender, who earns a certificate, educational or vocational, while behind bars, may qualify to expedite his/her release date.
Reducing Recidivism
When combined with other rehabilitative programs, education is a powerful factor in reducing recidivism. Rigorous study gives offenders the intellectual leverage they need to revise their view of themselves and leave prison better equipped to contribute positively to their families and communities. Education has been the longest running and most successful rehabilitative program in our prison history.
