The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. BJA provides grant funding to community supervision agencies across the country seeking to reduce crimes committed by, and improve outcomes for, people under supervision by using the SCF principles as described below: Swiftness — responding to behavior promptly so that people under supervision connect the response to their behavior. Certainty — ensuring that sanctions and rewards are applied with consistency and predictability. Fairness — making sanctions proportionate to negative behavior and rewards appropriate to positive behavior. This solicitation seeks a TTA provider to provide information, resources, and TTA to state, local, and tribal community supervision agencies seeking to develop and test new or enhanced applications of the SCF principles using a data-driven, collaborative process that is informed by research and responsive to local circumstances.
