National Portrait of SVORI

Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative


As part of a five-year joint project, RTI International and the Urban Institute have produced National Portrait of SVORI: the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative. Funded by the departments of Justice, Labor, Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Health and Human Services, SVORI provides over $100 million to 69 grantees in all 50 states and the Virgin Islands to develop programming, training, and state-of-the-art reentry strategies at the community level. SVORI programs intend to reduce recidivism and improve employment, housing, and health outcomes for participants. This report outlines SVORI and the planned impact evaluation, and describes each grantee's program.
