With funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Cost-Benefit Knowledge Bank for Criminal Justice (CBKB) is offering free technical assistance to help jurisdictions build their capacity to use cost-benefit analysis (CBA) in criminal justice policymaking and planning.
CBKB will provide technical assistance to four jurisdictions over a twelve-month period. Each team will receive up to three on-site visits along with ongoing support via online trainings, phone calls, and customized materials, and one to two multisite meetings to foster peer-to-peer learning across sites.
Eligible applicants under this initiative are limited to local governments (i.e., cities and counties) and federally recognized Indian tribes (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) that have a demonstrated commitment to developing CBA capacity.
The deadline for submission is February 23, 2012.
For more details and to apply, please download and review the application instructions.
Please note: This application is for technical assistance only. No direct funding will be provided to sites that are selected to receive technical assistance.
