Dept. of Justice - Objective Jail Classification Project. Deadline: 7/5/22. $100K Available.
Objective Jail Classification Project
Objective Jail Classification (OJC) should be the heart of every jail’s operation. When incarcerated individuals are classified according to their risks and needs, proper management and rehabilitative programs can then be set to address them more successfully. Since the inception of NIC’s Point Additive Classification process, the field has seen increases in female intakes, and changes in the levels of seriously mentally ill and substance-addicted arrestees. Violent gang membership has risen and rival members need to be kept separate but still have their needs addressed equitably.
New laws such as the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) have been enacted, which specifically address many functions of a jail’s operation to increase inmate and staff safety that need to be taken into account but were not part of the original process.
Accurate inmate classification also plays a key role in determining facility designs for jurisdictions replacing outdated and/or dilapidating jails. Determining the security levels for housing areas and types of recreational and program spaces allows the funding authority to hone in on more precise expenses.
NIC invites applications from nonprofit organizations (including faith-based, community, and tribal organizations), for-profit organizations (including tribal for-profit organizations), and institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education). Recipients, including for-profit organizations, must agree to waive any profit or fee for services. Foreign governments, international organizations, and non-governmental international organizations/institutions are not eligible to apply. Proof of 501(c) (3) status as determined by the Internal Revenue Service or an authorizing tribal resolution is required.NIC welcomes applications that involve two or more entities; however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the others must be proposed as subrecipients. The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire program. Only one (1) application will be accepted from a submitting organization.
