Today, the City University of New York Institute for State and Local Governance (CUNY-ISLG) released a report marking the progress of the Manhattan District Attorney’s $250 million Criminal Justice Investment Initiative (CJII). CUNY-ISLG provides technical assistance for CJII, including managing the solicitation and contracting process, providing guidance to award recipients, and providing oversight and performance measurement throughout the lifetime of CJII.
The report summarizes the impact to date of CJII investments in three key areas: supporting young people and families, supporting survivors of crime, and enhancing diversion and reentry support. It also examines CJII’s efforts to ensure long-term impact, including through capital investments, rigorous program evaluations, and training and technical assistance. So far, more than 8,000 New Yorkers have received crucial services as a result of CJII investments.
