Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $2,503,344)

This proposal supports the study of the impact of a promising sixteen-week, risk-needs-responsivity (RNR) curriculum on successful reentry and reduced likelihood of recidivism in two Ohio correctional institutions, one male and one female. The proposed randomized controlled trial (RCT) includes a full process, impact, and cost study. The study will assess reentry outcomes after three years, particularly: recidivism, housing, employment and economic well-being. The impact evaluation will rely on both administrative data and post-release participant interviews.

Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law, and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR 200.210(a)(14).
