The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) seeks applications for funding to develop, collect, analyze, and disseminate the Census of State and Federal Adult Correctional Facilities (CCF). This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by gathering critical criminal justice data from state and federal prisons and providing these data to support innovative strategies to handle the challenges confronting the justice system.
BJS anticipates making one award to cover 27 months to identify appropriate respondents; conduct frame verification; and collect, process, analyze, and disseminate data from the CCF. Within this timeframe, there are several key project dates:
BJS views the CCF as the primary means to produce national- and state-level statistics describing adult correctional facility characteristics that complement population data obtained through other BJS data collections and periodically obtain a universe for sample selection of facilities for SPI. During the 27-month project, the recipient of funds will complete the CCF data collection and deliver high-quality data on facility operations, conditions of confinement, and inmate characteristics.
