The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year 2020 for information gathering and writing assistance in developing a comprehensive web resource for community supervision agencies.
The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive one-stop-shop of reliable resources to aid community supervision agencies in making informed decisions regarding technology, programs, and practices that will enhance their ability to address public and employee safety. Topics presented should be from a balanced perspective and not meant to sway the reader one way or the other in determining their choice but should provide both pros and cons identified during the information gathering and review process.

2. Research resources and develop brief descriptions of those resources for review and revision.
3. Provide materials to the NIC Project Staff and the Information Center Staff in an agreed upon format.
