JRI-II Reporting & Certification of Compliance

JRI-II Reporting & Certification of Compliance

Pennsylvania’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative (Acts 114 and 115 of 2019) requires the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s (PCCD) County Adult Probation and Parole Advisory Committee to develop a funding plan for county adult probation and parole departments that address three sources of funding: county intermediate punishment program funding, discretionary grants, and a funding formula (grant-in-aid). The Committee is required to consider numerous factors in developing the funding formula, including:  1) a county’s full submission of data to the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing; and 2) the Sentencing Commission’s certification of a county’s compliance with guidelines and with a county’s current intermediate punishment plan for imposing restrictive conditions.  Only counties certified as compliant are eligible to receive county intermediate punishment program funding.

The Commission’s Certification of Compliance is effective for funding purposes based on 2021 data.
