1. When a prisoner becomes eligible for parole pursuant to this chapter or the regulations adopted pursuant to this chapter, the Board shall consider and may authorize the release of the prisoner on parole as provided in this chapter. The Board may authorize the release of a prisoner on parole whether or not parole is accepted by the prisoner.
2. Not later than 6 months before the date a prisoner becomes eligible for parole, the Department of Corrections and the prisoner shall develop a reentry plan for the prisoner that takes into consideration the needs, limitations and capabilities of the prisoner. The Division shall review the reentry plan and verify the information contained therein and shall coordinate with any other state agencies for available services regarding housing or treatment. Before the prisoner's parole eligibility date, the Department of Corrections shall provide a copy of the reentry plan to the prisoner. A reentry plan developed pursuant to this subsection must include, without limitation, information relating to:
(a) The proposed residence of the prisoner;
(b) The prisoner's employment or means of financial support;
(c) Any treatment and counseling options available to the prisoner, including, without limitation, any clinical assessments relating to the behavioral health needs of the prisoner;
(d) Any job or education services available to the prisoner; and
(e) Eligibility and enrollment for Medicaid and Medicare.
3. If the release of a prisoner on parole is authorized by the Board, the Division shall:
(a) Review and, if appropriate, approve each prisoner's proposed reentry plan developed pursuant to subsection 2; or
(b) If the prisoner's proposed reentry plan is not approved by the Division, assist the prisoner to develop a plan for his or her placement upon release,
before the prisoner is released on parole. The prisoner's proposed reentry plan must identify the county in which the prisoner will reside if the prisoner will be paroled in Nevada.
4. If a prisoner is indigent and the prisoner's proposed reentry plan indicates that the prisoner will reside in transitional housing upon release, the Division may, within the limits of available resources, pay for all or a portion of the cost of the transitional housing for the prisoner based upon the prisoner's economic need, as determined by the Division. The Division shall make such payment directly to the provider of the transitional housing.
5. The Board may adopt any regulations necessary or convenient to carry out this section.
