Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $500,000)
The Urban Institute (Urban) has assembled an experienced multidisciplinary team, comprised of researchers from its Justice Policy Center, core staff from its practitioner-focused PerformWell team, and its enhanced communications department, to respond to the second year of funding for Bridging Research and Practice Project to Advance Juvenile Justice and Safety. This proposed team has considerable knowledge of the state of practice-relevant research in core focus areas, gleaned from four decades of first-hand research and evaluation, and a keen appreciation of practitioners and policymakers' desire to know both what to do and how to do it, drawn from its hands-on juvenile justice reform work and PerformWell work. PerformWell-a one-stop, online resource for practitioners that provides research-based guidance for both the selection of meaningful outcomes to measure and implementation to produce consistent positive outcomes efficiently and effectively.
This program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants and cooperative agreements for training and technical assistance to organizations that OJJDP designates. NCA/NCF
