The Justice Policy Institute (JPI) is a national nonprofit that works to change the conversation around justice reform and advance policies that promote well-being and justice for all people and communities. Its research and analyses identify effective programs and policies that are then disseminated to the media, policymakers and advocates. It also provides training and technical assistance to others working for justice reform. This grant will allow JPI to provide technical assistance, research and support to the NYC Department of Corrections (DOC) to develop and implement two to three units at Rikers Island for young men between the ages of 18 and 21. These units will be modeled after successful programs in two CT prisons and will prioritize meeting the unique needs of incarcerated young men.
