The Adult Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board is pleased to release a Request For Proposals (RFP) to bring on new implementation sites in FY14. The intent of this RFP is to grant funds to counties, judicial circuits, or parts of judicial circuits to expand alternatives to incarceration for non-violent offenders. The number and amount of new awards is contingent upon FY14 state funding appropriation levels. The deadline for applications is Friday, August 30, 2013. The grant period runs from October 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.
Successful applicants will articulate how their proposals further the stated goals of Adult Redeploy Illinois:
- Reduce crime and recidivism at a lower cost to taxpayers.
- Use financial incentives to counties or judicial circuits to create effective local level evidence based services.
- Encourage the successful local supervision of eligible offenders and their reintegration into the locality.
Successful applicants will demonstrate how the use of evidence-based practices in assessment, supervision and treatment will improve public safety and offender outcomes. To support the long-term sustainability of the program and its recidivism reduction goals, applicants also must include the development of a community involvement piece in their local plans (e.g., Community Restorative Boards, community service, mentoring).
