Description

This program provides funding for state, local, and tribal community corrections agencies to improve supervision capacity to prevent recidivism and reduce crime in their jurisdictions.

The goal of this program is to improve the capacity and effectiveness of probation and parole agencies to increase probation and parole success rates and reduce the rate of recidivism for those under supervision. Such efforts would reduce crime, victimization, admissions to prisons and jails, and save taxpayer dollars.

Date Created: February 28, 2020
