Enter the Better Government Competition

2015 THEME: “Improving Public Safety and Controlling Costs in America’s Criminal Justice System” – Deadline April 6, 2015

Pioneer Institute’s Better Government Competition is a citizens’ ideas contest that seeks out and rewards innovative solutions to public sector problems, with different focus areas each year. The 2015 competition aims to reform America’s troubled criminal justice system. Pioneer seeks to reexamine policies that have driven mass incarceration and resulted in significant fiscal and human costs. Competitive proposals will include creative approaches to reducing the state and federal prison population, reducing recidivism, and addressing racial disparities in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. The Institute seeks ideas that make government more effective and efficient, protect individual liberties and make our communities safer.
