Applications will be accepted for all program types including Evidence Based Programs, Promising Practice Programs, Practice Based Programs, etc. a. Evidence Based Programs – Evidence Based Programs refer to outcome focused approaches and interventions that have been scientifically tested in controlled studies and proven effective. b. Promising Practice Programs - Programs that have strategies, activities, or approaches which have supporting research/evaluation, as well as measurable outcomes that have shown the program to be effective at rehabilitating offenders. c.
