CSAC’s Evidence-Based Programming Help Desk
Need assistance in learning about adult criminal justice programs? We are now operating our Technical Assistance Hub to include an evidence-based programming help desk. The help desk will provide ongoing assistance to counties in navigating and using the Results First Clearinghouse Database to answer questions about evidence-based programs in a variety of social policy areas like adult criminal justice, juvenile justice, adult behavioral health. We encourage counties to use it as a first step for information about what programs are proven to be effective. We’re available to assist you as you navigate that site.
