Performance incentive funding (PIF) programs financially reward community corrections agencies and local jurisdictions with a share of state savings for delivering better outcomes, including sending fewer offenders to prison, through the use of evidence-based practices. Highlighted in Vera’s report are lessons learned by the states that have already enacted PIF legislation and the key considerations policymakers need to take into account when designing and implementing their own PIF program.
