Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $428,143)

The Second Chance Act signed into law on April 9, 2008, provides a comprehensive response to the increasing number of people who are released from prison and jail and returning to communities, including resources to address the myriad needs of these offenders to achieve a successful return to their communities. As a complement to the Second Chance Act programs, the FY 2014 Smart Supervision Program (SSP) seeks to improve probation and parole success rates, which would in turn improve public safety, reduce admissions to prisons and jails, and save taxpayer dollars. The goal of this program is to develop and test innovative strategies to implement evidence-based probation and parole approaches that increase community safety, and reduce violent crime by effectively addressing individuals' risk and needs, and reducing recidivism.

This grant will fund the Risk and Evidence Based Supervision pilot project. The purpose of this project is to develop a pilot program for adult offenders who live in a rural area. The program will serve approximately 155 participants during the project period. The goal of the program is to reduce recidivism. CA/NCF
