Annotation: This report presents the findings from an analysis of Annual Project Report forms (APR's) submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, by States that implemented drug-control programs under the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Assistance Program, funded by the Anti-Drug Abuse Acts of 1986 and 1988.
Abstract: The data presented in this report have been obtained from a subset of approximately 3,800 APR's that States have submitted to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) through December 1992. Chapter one presents findings for a wide range of formula grant funded programs from a sample of APR's submitted to the Bureau of Justice Assistance. Chapter two presents findings from analyses of data on training components that were included in a variety of programs. The analyses in chapter three profile drug treatment programs implemented with formula grant funds. The analysis shows that there are useful analysis options for BJA regarding sub- grantee performance and monitoring data reported by the State formula grant administrative offices. At a minimum, the descriptions of purpose areas covered, implementing agencies and project target areas, multijurisdictional projects, project target areas, Federal agency involvement, and training and evaluation components for formula grant funded programs provide useful information to the BJA State and Local Assistance Division and Program Evaluation unit for program assessment purposes and for reporting program information to the U.S. Congress. This preliminary analysis has also shown a number of limitations to the APR data submitted by States to BJA. For more useful analyses to be conducted in the future, both the States and BJA must adopt more rigorous data quality control standards and processes for the subgrantee progress reports. Additionally, more complete reporting will be required from the State administrative offices and from sub-grantees, so that more States are represented in summary reports. Figures and tables are included.
