BJA logoThe U.S. Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has announced two FY2018 funding opportunities under the Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI). JRI uses criminal justice data to design and implement innovative, research-based, and comprehensive approaches to reduce crime, cut recidivism rates, and shift resources toward more cost-effective safety strategies that work.

BJA’s Overview and Example Strategies contain more information about these JRI funding opportunities.

Applications are due on January 7, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. ET.
