Summary
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) aims to improve community safety through effective programming throughout the United States. To maximize the impact of its investments, BJA has an interest in supporting programs that will be sustained beyond initial federal funding. This notion of program sustainability is becoming increasingly important as programs have been challenged to operate with increasingly scarce resources. RAND Corporation researchers aimed to better understand the characteristics and environments of programs that are likely to persist beyond federal seed funding and to delineate strategies that will enable BJA to assist programs that it funds in their efforts to sustain themselves. Using archival documentation and survey methods, they assessed 231 BJA grantee programs spanning three BJA funding domains - drug courts, human trafficking, and mental health - to identify characteristics associated with sustainability. They found evidence of program sustainment in most BJA grantees studied, particularly in sustained funding. They also examined the association between organizational and contextual factors and sustained operations and sustained funding. Finally, they recommend a plan for ongoing measurement of sustainability

  • "In this report, we describe a study of program sustainability examining the sustainment status of 231 BJA grantee programs from BJA's drug court (DC), human trafficking (HT), and mental health (MH) areas. To ground this task in a theoretical context, we started with a literature review outlining definitions of sustainment and the factors associated with sustained programs. These themes were further explored in primary data collection from interviews with seven key informants in the criminal justice field. Specifically, we asked about program characteristics and other factors associated with program sustainment beyond cessation of BJA funding. We then reviewed archival records on each program, including information contained within their grant applications, progress reports, BJA assessments, and other documents to select relevant characteristics and examined their association within program sustainment beyond seed funding. To assess program sustainment, we report results of a survey of 136 of the 231 funded grantees followed by an analysis of factors predictive of program sustainment."--Introduction
