NIJ seeks applications for funding for research on sentencing and community corrections policies and practices that promote effective and cost-efficient community-based alternatives to jail and prison without jeopardizing public safety. Priority research questions include what policies and practices promote effective and cost-efficient alternatives to incarceration for alcohol and other drug-involved offenders, including those with mental health (i.e., comorbid) issues; and what technological applications and protocols for assessment or monitoring support effective and cost-efficient alternatives to incarceration? The target population must include adult offenders in State, local, or Federal jurisdictions who are convicted on criminal charges and may be sentenced to jail or prison.
