Grant Description
As part of a collaborative effort with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to implement and rigorously test important criminal justice interventions and programs, NIJ seeks competitive proposals for a single award that will support a multi-site randomized controlled trial (RCT) program evaluation of the HOPE DFE. Jurisdictions across the United States are seeking effective ways to maintain public safety by holding offenders accountable while at the same time reducing costs of imprisonment. A recent NIJ-funded evaluation of the Hawaii Opportunity Probation With Enforcement (HOPE) program showed that the program has great promise for reducing offending and ensuring probationer compliance by combining random drug tests with swift and certain sanctions for probation violations. Based on these positive findings, BJA will fund the expansion of the original HOPE program model implemented in Hawaii to four other sites. Every effort will be made to replicate the original program as closely as possible in the new sites. The demonstration field experiment (DFE) will examine the HOPE program's processes, outcomes, and cost effectiveness through a multi-site study conducted for the explicit purpose of generating evidence about this probation program.
