Each year between FY00 and FY03, 63 percent of offenders successfully completed their stay in the halfway house.1 In FY03, the per diem rate paid to community corrections providers was reduced by 8 percent, and the daily amount offenders were required to pay was increased by over 23 percent. In FY04 the successful completion rate dropped to 56 percent. Besides these legislative changes in costs, there is nothing to explain this increase in offender failures in FY04.2

For more information, please see the following report: Fall 2005 Adult Prison and Parole Population Projects Juvenile Commitment and Parole Population Projection. This report is available in the Population Projections section of this site.

Notes on these data:

1 Successfully complete means that the offender left the halfway house program with a positive status; the offender either completed their court sentence or were transferred to another, less restrictive and non-residential sentencing placement.
2 DCJ’s Office of Research and Statistics conducted this analysis using data from the Office of Community Corrections.
