This webinar will provide guidance to potential applicants to the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA's) FY 2021 Restrictive Housing Reform Implementation Assistance Program solicitation.
Through this opportunity, BJA seeks a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider and subject matter experts to help state correctional agencies implement changes to their trainings, policies, and practices to reduce their use of restrictive housing.
The program’s goals are to (1) provide support and assistance to correctional agencies that are ready to implement reforms, (2) create resources based on national implementation efforts that will be made available to correctional agencies and facilities engaged in or considering restrictive housing reform, and (3) develop practices for correctional agencies to use in collecting and analyzing data to measure the impact of reforms.
The presenter will discuss the purpose and goals of this funding opportunity; review eligibility requirements; discuss the application process; and highlight useful resources to assist in applying. A Q&A session will conclude this webinar.
