Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $599,985)

Parole and its research partner, BOTEC, propose to review what data was collected from the initial SCF grant-funded RCT; to compare the Pennsylvania approach both for “parole as usual” and for this SCF grant to traditional SCF models in other states and localities; to identify the obstacles to implementing SCF protocols both based on initial experience during the SCF grant and also new issues in the present COVID reality; and develop an implementation plan of SCF principles into Parole standard operating procedures.
