Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $600,000)

Using OJJDP funds, CJI will work in Georgia, Hawaii, and Kentucky with the purpose of working on four main goals: increasing the capacity of the states to sustain reforms; implementing objective decision making structures; enhancing community based alternatives to out-of-home placement; and supporting monitoring, measurement, and reinvestment. This
will include targeted technical assistance through facilitation and education, training and train-the-trainer initiatives, the development of materials (such as implementation plans, policies and procedures, quality assurance plans, performance measures and data collection
frameworks, and fiscal tracking systems), and the engagement of stakeholders that will be crucial to successful implementation. NCA/NCF
