Annotation: This booklet presents the application guidelines for the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics' State Justice Statistics Program for fiscal year 1997, which is intended to help State Statistical Analysis Centers (SACs) to be more topical and stronger statistical resources.
Abstract: This program announcement supplants the State-Level Statistical Analysis Centers and Information Network Program. It involves a shift from SAC support funded exclusively by BJS to a coordinated solicitation that involves other Office of Justice Programs agencies. During the 6-month period, BJS will have the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention as a partner. The State Justice Statistics Program for Statistical Analysis Centers is oriented around issues and products. Each application for funding under this program must identify the participating organizations in the State and the particular issues to be addressed. The SJS program requires that the topics be identified in advance. Further, BJS will from time to time announce specific topics and products it is encouraging and will ask applicants to give careful consideration to planning activities that fit within one or more of the designated topics. The themes/topics applicable to the first 6 months of the SJS program are juvenile justice and violence; domestic and sexual violence data collection and analysis; corrections studies related to changing sentencing policies; research that uses incident-based crime data compatible with the National Incident- Based Reporting System; Internet infrastructure development and linkages; technical assistance to an urban, rural, or tribal community that is a recipient of funding from the OJP Safe Kids- Safe Streets Program; an analysis of criminal history records; and any theme or topic that is identified by the SAC applicant. This booklet also provides detailed information pertinent to completing an application for funding; an application form is included.
