Implementation of SVORI programs. The Multi-site Evaluation of the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative
Grantees funded under the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) were charged with planning, implementing, and developing a sustainability plan for their programs over a 3-year award period. Most grantees received partial funding in the last quarter of 2002 and full spending approval in 2003, though the specific funding schedule varied across sites and some did not receive full approval until early 2004. This report summarizes the SVORI implementation process as of June 2005, based on a survey of the program directors for all 89 SVORI programs.
