The Swift Certain Fair (SCF) Resource Center provides technical assistance to help SCF grantees make the most of their federal grant dollars to support sustainable, successful, and evidence-based SCF initiatives. The SCF Resource Center also provides support to non-grantee practitioners, researchers, and others in the field. The SCF Resource Center can:

  • Connect grantees to research and resources, learning opportunities, and outside expertise through a library of publications, tools, and news items on SCF principles and models, regular distance learning opportunities (e.g., webinars) with national practitioners and academic experts, and individual consultation with subject matter experts and experienced practitioners.
  • Support implementation through on- and off-site technical assistance. Includes guidance to develop sanctions and rewards schemes and partnering with other justice agencies; assess and improve policies and practices; offer insights on roadblocks that past grantees have encountered and strategies used to work around them. Also offers tools to develop a strategic plan to prioritize, implement, and sustain SCF efforts.
  • Link grantees to peers by hosting peer learning forums, as well as referrals to peers and past SCF recipients with similar programs and objectives, and holding forums to publicize grantees' work and to facilitate learning from the work of peers.
