The Collaborative Forum is a community of federal, state, local, and non-government stakeholders who work together to improve federally-funded, state-administeredprograms. Convened in 2010 to consult on pilot ideas for the Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation, the Collaborative Forum has evolved into a dynamic learning community where stakeholders discuss important topics and exchange ideas for improving program integrity, efficiency, and effectiveness.
Through monthly meetings, webinars and other presentations, the Forum provides many opportunities for members to share best practices and learn from one another while helping to advance the improvement of service delivery, efficiency and the reduction of waste. We encourage members to participate in these discussions and share their ideas. To participate in Forum discussions, visitors must create an account and log in.

Join us for a Forum Feature Conference Call on the Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Juvenile... Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) funded pilot Do Right by Youth: A Comprehensive Strategy for Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment. This month’s Forum Feature Call will highlight the Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Pilot Project led by the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The discussion will focus on an overview of the pilot concept and highlight the Milwaukee, Wisconsin pilot site to describe an “on the ground” experience in carrying out this innovation and reform effort in the early stages of stakeholder engagement and assessment and planning for reform. Pilot Summary: The Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative is designed to conduct a pilot test of evidence-based decision making and cost realignment in juvenile justice programming at the local level in three sites with a focus on reducing recidivism. We know that early intervention with children entering the juvenile justice system is less expensive and is critically important in reducing the risk of recidivism. Research has shown that the deeper a child goes into the juvenile justice system, the harder it is to intervene effectively. Alternatives to confinement and community-based solutions are important components of any systemwide reform effort. Investing more resources at the early stages is a more economically responsive approach because it prevents recidivism and deeper involvement in the system. JJRRI aims to utilize a research-based tool to assess programs and placement decisions for youth in the juvenile justice system to ensure that youth receive the most effective and cost-effective service and care options and to guide a system reform effort in three pilot locations: Wisconsin; Iowa, and Delaware The Conference call is on June 19th from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET.
