Veterans: Risk and Needs Assessment Tool and Protocol


The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for a 36-month period to begin no later than September 15, 2014. Work under this cooperative agreement will involve developing a multi-disciplinary advisory committee to assist with reviewing and revising the veteranÂ’s needs screening tool and veteranÂ’s treatment court risk and needs assessment protocol, along with developing a comprehensive clinical needs screening tool containing factors which will identify combat veterans entering the criminal justice system and those clinical factors that may be most at risk. This tool will be specific to Veterans in the criminal justice system and designed to be a non-proprietary, open source document available to the field. This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC Community Services Division.
