Community Supervision Resource Center

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications to establish a resource center to provide information and assistance to state, local, and tribal entities responsible for adult probation, parole, and pretrial supervision. This new center will complement the work of the BJA-supported National Reentry Resource Center.

Under this solicitation, BJA is establishing the Community Supervision Resource Center (CSRC) to help community supervision authorities — those responsible for pretrial, probation, and parole populations — advance faster along the continuum of best and emerging practices. The CSRC is intended to help agencies understand where they are on the continuum, define where they want to be, and take steps to get there. This new program will collect and share relevant and available resources, develop tools to help agencies operationalize that knowledge to strengthen and make their work more effective, and provide training and technical assistance to agencies in close consultation with BJA (“ad hoc TTA”). This new center will complement the work of the National Reentry Resource Center which advances the knowledge base of the reentry field to improve outcomes for people leaving incarceration and returning to communities.

Specific areas of focus will include translating knowledge about best practices and innovations in:

1. Supervision of adults assessed as having high risk of recidivism or high risk of violence in order to mitigate the likelihood of those events;

2. Supervision agencies’ role in community violence initiatives that reduce gun violence, intervene in conflicts, and facilitate connections to social, health and wellness, and economic services to reduce the likelihood of violence as an answer to conflict; and

3. Advance equity and fairness in the administration and delivery of supervision, including addressing policies and practices that disproportionately affect poor people and people of color.
