  Annotation: This final report presents the findings of the Transition from Prison to the Community (TPC) initiative based on the 3-year technical assistance period that concluded in June 2012.
  Abstract: This report summarizes all activities related to the second round of the TPC effort, drawing upon information gleaned from interviews with key stakeholders in TPC States, direct onsite observation of TPC activities, review of documentation notes and meeting minutes, remote consultation with sites, discussions with lead technical assistance providers, and a review of relevant literature and extant site data. This report details the TPC model and implementation approach, describes the TPC process evaluation and systems change evaluation methodology, and discusses the implementation experiences of the six learning sites participating in this round of TPC. A discussion of cross-site observations regarding facilitators of and barriers to implementation, and lessons that can be derived from the TPC implementation experiences is included. The evaluation includes a process evaluation to explain TPC in each State, including whether implementation proceeded as designed, the range of activities pursued, factors that facilitated or inhibited TPC implementation, lessons learned, and a systems change analysis to assess the degree to which the reentry system in each State actually changed along the dimensions included in the TPC model and approach.
