The Swift and Certain Sanctions (SAC)/Replicating the Concepts Behind Project HOPE program provides funding to states, units of local government, territories, and federally recognized Indian tribes (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) in an effort to enhance public safety, foster collaboration, and to improve the outcomes of individuals under the supervision of community corrections.
The SAC Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Resource Center program, which is funded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, Pub. L. No. 113-76, 128 Stat. 5, 63, §§ 22 and 29, will provide TTA resources for state, local, and tribal governments to establish or enhance alternatives to incarceration that are focused on modifying and reducing criminal behavior and enhancing public safety—through the use of HOPE SAC sanction initiatives. The specific objective of this program is to identify and support a highly qualified team of experts to establish a TTA resource center to assist jurisdictions across the United States that are interested in developing, enhancing, and/or improving the fidelity of their SAC efforts.
