What is the difference between and the What Works in Reentry Clearinghouse?

The National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Assistance have merged the What Works in Reentry Clearinghouse with This move was undertaken to provide practitioners and policymakers a single place to search for what works, what doesn’t, and what’s promising in reentry programs. See the Reentry/Release Topic page for a complete list of rated programs.

Because the methods used by the two sites differ, each program from the WWRC was re-reviewed and rated using the rating instrument. For some programs, this has resulted in a different rating or a determination that the evidence for the effectiveness of the program was inconclusive. In those cases, no rating has been assigned.

While the former home of the WWRC, the Reentry Resource Center, will continue to provide additional resources on reentry, it is BJA's intention to remove the program ratings in the near future.
