New Criminal Justice-Mental Health Learning Sites Application Launch
February 2, 2023
As referenced in the January 12 CSAC Bulletin, CSAC shared that the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center is partnering with U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to select 10 to 12 programs from around the country that will highlight effective approaches from crisis response through courts, jails, probation, and community-based programs. Priority will be given to applicants that are using innovative practices and are leading the field with interventions to reduce contact with the criminal justice system and recidivism for people who are involved in the criminal justice and behavioral health systems.
The January 31, 2023 deadline has been extended to February 10, 2023. The application can be found here: https://csgjusticecenter.org/2023/01/09/apply-now-to-join-a-national-program-for-criminal-justice-and-mental-health-learning-sites/.
Additionally, if your county does not plan on applying, CSAC would love to hear about any successful programs or work being done in your county.
