NRRC | Second Chance Act Smart Probation Grant Program

First funded in 2012, the Smart Probation grant program provides funding to state and local government agencies and federally recognized Indian tribes to implement evidence-based supervision strategies to improve outcomes for probationers. Funds can be used to implement evidence-based supervision strategies and to innovate new strategies to improve outcomes for probationers. In 2012, BJA awarded nine Smart Probation grants of up to $500,000 for a two-year project period. To view a list of the 2012 grantees, click here.

In 2013, the Bureau of Justice Assistance will award three-year Smart Probation grants of up to $750,000. To view the 2013 Smart Probation solicitation, click here. Applications were due on May 9, 2013.
