Data Driven Award

The Data and Research Committee created the Data Driven Award to reward programs who fully utilize data and their case management systems to improve program and participant outcomes. The Data Driven Award provides both recognition and financial support for continued program evaluation.

Since data is instrumental to self-evaluation and for showing community partners, stakeholders, and legislatures accountability courts work in Georgia, CACJ hopes the Data Driven Award will reinforce the importance of strong data collection.
