Summary

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for a federal grant to support the delivery of three Correctional Case Management for Jails regional training programs. This grant opportunity aims to improve the case management system in jails by implementing a standardized file structure and agency forms to maintain social and behavioral information about incarcerated individuals. Currently, many jails lack a centralized file where information about a person's behavior is chronologically and categorically maintained during their stay. While jails typically maintain separate files for court and legal information, as well as medical and mental health information, they do not have a comprehensive file that includes a person's social and behavioral information. Correctional case management offers a solution by providing correctional staff with the tools to intervene on behalf of individuals using a standardized language, file structure, agency forms, documentation, and file maintenance. A case management file, also known as a classification or program file, serves as a social file that tells the story of a person's stay in jail. It includes information about the person's progress through various actions such as security and property checks, booking, medical interviews, orientation, classification (security rating and housing assignment), and other operational and programmatic offerings of the jail. The grant opportunity is open to nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations (including tribal for-profit organizations), and institutions of higher education. Applicants must agree to waive any profit or fee for services. Foreign governments, international organizations, and non-governmental international organizations/institutions are not eligible to apply. NIC welcomes applications that involve multiple entities, but one eligible entity must be the applicant and others can be proposed as subrecipients. The total funding available for this program is $90,000, with an expected number of awards being one. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The closing date for applications is February 12, 2024. For more information and to apply, interested parties can visit the NIC website at https://nicic.gov/about-nic/funding-opportunities/correctional-case-management-jails-training. For specific inquiries, contact Cameron D Coblentz, the grantor, at ccoblentz@bop.gov or by phone at 202-514-0053.

Description

In many jails, there is no standardized file where information about person’s behavior is chronologically and categorically maintained while that person is in an institution. Most jails maintain a file for court and legal information and a medical file for medical and mental health information, but they do not maintain a file with a person’s social and behavioral information. Social and behavioral information can often be maintained in separate classification, housing, disciplinary, grievance, programs, and security files.Correctional case management is an alternative to having an incarcerated person’s information spread among different offices in a jail. Correctional case management gives correctional staff the means to intervene on behalf of a person using a standard language, file structure, agency forms, documentation, and file maintenance. A case management file (also known as a classification or program file) is a social file that tells the story about a person’s stay.Typically, when a person is admitted into a jail, there are a series of actions that the person must progress through, such as security and property checks, booking, a medical interview, orientation, and classification (security rating and housing assignment). There are also additional actions that a person may experience or progress through depending on the operational structure and programmatic offerings of a jail. Orientation, classification, and institutional behaviors are the focus of Correctional Case Management for Jails.

Training Model to Improve Trauma-Informed Crisis Responses for People with Mental Illness and Developmental Disabilities in a Carceral Setting
National Institute of Corrections
The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking proposals for a cooperative agreement to develop a research-based training model. The purpose of this model is to improve trauma-informed crisis responses for individuals with mental illness and developmental disabilities in a carceral setting. The training program should educate and prepare jail and prison staff to appropriately interact with these individuals. The training model should be developed by an institution of higher education or a non-profit, for-profit, or tribal organization in collaboration with healthcare and corrections professionals. It should take a multidisciplinary approach and focus on understanding behavioral health, including mental illness and substance use disorders, as well as intellectual and developmental disabilities. The training should also cover topics such as developing empathy, navigating community resources, and de-escalation skills. The centerpiece of the training program should be a 40-hour Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) train-the-trainer program. The goal is to equip all staff working in prisons and jails with the necessary skills to provide trauma-informed care. The total funding available for this opportunity is $1,000,000, with an expected number of awards being one. The closing date for applications is June 24, 2024. Non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, tribal organizations, and institutions of higher education are eligible to apply. However, foreign governments, international organizations, and non-governmental international organizations/institutions are not eligible.
