Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories local, state, and Tribal governments for projects to reduce crime and recidivism. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to enhance probation, parole, and pretrial supervision agencies’ capacity to help reduce crimes committed by, and improve outcomes for, people under supervision by using the swift, certain, and fair principles of intervention.

The swift, certain, and fair (SCF) principles are:

  • 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.

Goals: The goals of the SCF Program are to provide state, local, and tribal community supervision agencies with information, resources, and training and technical assistance (TTA) to improve responses to client behavior in accordance with the principles of swiftness, certainty, and fairness; improve supervision outcomes; prevent recidivism; and reduce crime in their jurisdictions.

Objectives: 

  • Develop and implement supervision strategies based on the SCF principles, including responding to both positive and negative client behaviors.
  • Reduce crime committed by, and improve outcomes for, people under supervision.
  • Identify a target population for the SCF initiative using a collaborative, data-driven process that responds to local circumstances. 
  • Evaluate the efficacy of SCF strategies to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for individuals under community supervision.

Deliverables: The required deliverables are:

  • An action plan, which will be a product of collaboration between the agency and the technical assistance provider.
  • A final report that documents the process, intervention, outcomes, and lessons learned.
