Grants to USA state, local, and tribal corrections agencies to create model sites to reduce recidivism and violent crime. Funding is intended for sites that have pre-existing partnerships among law enforcement, community corrections, and prosecuting agencies. Selected model sites will have the opportunity to become national leaders by highlighting their cutting-edge strategies for collaboratively reducing violent crime and recidivism.

This ISI Model Site Program is designed to:

  • Help project partners and the field at large learn from partnerships between probation and/or parole (“community corrections”), law enforcement, and/or prosecuting agencies that have successfully reduced violent crime and recidivism in their jurisdictions; and 
  • Provide model sites with the opportunity to expand or improve their existing interagency partnership and/or related strategies.

Through the application process described herein, three model sites will be selected based on their existing interagency partnerships. The CSG Justice Center and project partners will work with these model sites to learn from their partnerships’ operations and outcomes, inform the development of a related publication, and assist them in improving or expanding their operations. 

BJA and the CSG Justice Center are seeking applications wherein the partner agencies have targeted their resources to specific populations and for specific purposes as described below: 

  • The existing interagency partnership’s strategy(ies) is designed to reduce violent crime and recidivism; 
  • The target population for the existing interagency partnership either entirely or partially comprises individuals on community supervision and assessed as medium, medium-high, and high risk of recidivism (including subsets of people in these risk levels, such as individuals under the supervision of community corrections for domestic or gang-related violence);  and 
  • The lead applicant (community corrections agency) is responsible for supervision of those individuals.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadline:
- All applications are due by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, August 30, 2019.
- Applicants will be notified of award decisions on or around October 31, 2019.

After all applications are reviewed, a subset of applicants will be chosen to move forward in the selection process based on the quality of the applications submitted and how well they demonstrate meeting the required eligibility criteria. The project partners may schedule follow-up calls and/or an on-site visit to inform the final selection of the three model sites.

All applicants must register with and maintain current registrations in the System for Award Management (SAM). However, recent activities have led to a change in process for SAM registrations that will impact schedule, so please plan accordingly. If you are a new entity registering in SAM or an existing entity that needs to update or renew your SAM registration, you must submit an original, signed notarized letter via U.S. Postal Service Mail appointing the authorized Entity Administrator before your registration will be activated.
