In partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center is seeking applications from state and local government agencies or federally recognized tribal entities to serve as model sites in the Innovations in Supervision Initiative (ISI): Community Corrections Collaborations to Reduce Violent Crime and Recidivism program. Model sites will be selected based on the quality and success of their partnerships between probation and/or parole (community corrections), law enforcement, and/or prosecuting agencies. The lead applicant must be a community corrections agency that has an existing partnership with a law enforcement and/or prosecuting agency.
Three sites will be selected to receive awards of up to $500,000 each to (1) participate in an ISI Model Site Advisory Committee to inform the development of a publication that guides future community corrections partnerships with law enforcement and/or prosecuting agencies and (2) expand or improve their existing partnerships over the course of a 23-month project period.
For this grant program, CSG Justice Center staff will work with their project partners—the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, the National Association of Probation Executives, the National Police Foundation, and George Mason University’s Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence—to learn from the model site partnerships’ operations and outcomes, glean information to develop the aforementioned publication, and assist model sites in improving or expanding their operations.
Proposals for this grant program must be submitted to Tara Dhanraj, policy analyst at the CSG Justice Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, August 30, 2019.
Applicants will be notified of award decisions on or around October 31, 2019.
