Background and Discussion:

HCJPD utilizes a validated risk and needs assessment tool (PACT) to determine risk and protective factors of justice involved youth.  The PACT has customized versions for community and residential settings so case plans are developed directly from the Noble Software, which is the platform that the PACT resides in.  TJJD has provided grant funds to pay for the maintenance fees associated with Noble Software and PACT upgrades/updates.

 

 

Expected Impact:

HCJPD will be able to utilize grant funds to pay for maintenance fees associated with the Noble Software and PACT Risk/Needs Assessment. 

 

Alternative Options:

If these grant funds were not awarded or accepted, HCJPD would utilize general funds to pay for maintenance fees as well as updates and upgrades.
