This Biannual Grantee Feedback Report for October 20-March 2016 enables grantees under the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) Program to compare their project's reported performance measurement data with that of the BCJI program as a whole in reducing crime and improving community safety as part of a comprehensive strategy to advance neighborhood revitalization goals.
Specifically, BCJI sites use a broad cross-sector partnership team, including residents, to target neighborhoods with "hot spots" of violent and serious crime, using data-driven collaborative strategies to reduce crime and violence. The number of community residents involved in planning BCJI programs continued its upward trend during the reporting period, reaching 452 during this 6-month period, continuing a steady trend since October 2014. The number of new partnerships in BCJI efforts continued to increase from October 2014, reaching a new high of 758 during the 6-month period. The vast majority of grantees continued to report that they are able to sustain some of their programs after BCJI funding has ended. Data are provided on performance measures, the percentage of grantees planning and implementing program activities, research partner involvement, and technical assistance and training to improve outcomes. 7 tables and 2 figures
