Cooperative Agreement: Dosage Probation White Paper
NIC News & Updates


Updated - See Questions and Answers below:

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. The goal of this cooperative agreement will be to highlight the Dosage Probation Model and to take the lessons learned, successes and challenges from the dosage test pilot sites with the field, and to develop and share an implementation model for jurisdictions.

Goals, Objectives, and Deliverables:

The goal of this cooperative agreement will be to share experiences from the dosage test pilot sites with the field; including successes, challenges, lessons learned, and also to develop and share an implementation model for jurisdictions considering the dosage model to use as a guide for implementation. The successful applicant will have intimate knowledge of the dosage probation concept and key research principles underlying the dosage model, along with familiarity with the dosage implementation strategies; including core activities, processes, and steps a jurisdiction would need to take to implement this approach. The successful applicant will need to work closely with NIC project manager and dosage probation team members in test pilot sites: Napa County, CA and Washington County, MN (and potentially Milwaukee, WI).

The successful applicant will be required to develop a 508 compliant report -with professional design- made available to the field and distributed nationally on Dosage Probation; that includes identifying the key stakeholders within a jurisdiction, what their roles should be for implementing dosage, share the successes and challenges of implementing the dosage probation concept within test pilot sites, along with the lessons learned, conduct peer-to-peer interviews with key stakeholders, case studies, and a road map for implementation that jurisdictions considering the dosage concept can use as a guide.

DEADLINE: Applications must be received before midnight (ET) on May 30, 2017.

Please note effective July 1, 2013 the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) was merged to the System for Award Management (SAM).  The SAM registry and Frequently Asked Questions can be reached at  Please note that the registration process can take up to 1-3 weeks, so please plan accordingly.

Question: We submitted an application to the 17CS05 opportunity which had a deadline of March 30, 2017, and haven’t heard anything to this point.  We were curious if you would be able to shed some light on the status of our application. 

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.  Decisions regarding cooperative agreement solicitation applications will be made before the end of the FY17 fiscal year.  Applicants can expect to receive information regarding their application no later than September 2017.
