Court-Based Intervention and Resource Teams (CIRT) Renewal Notices
The Court-based Intervention and Resource Team (CIRT) programs are charged with providing client advocacy, community-based supervision and case management services for defendants with mental health needs who are either in Department of Correction (DOC) custody and whom the court otherwise would not release and/or those individuals with mental health needs who are in-community and are at-risk of receiving a custodial sentence at disposition or sentencing. The Vendor’s program services are also designed to expand access to community-based supervision and behavioral health services without duplication of services currently availed through the City’s Alternative-to-Incarceration provider community. Individuals residing in-community will be referred to CIRT from non-DOC sources including, but not limited to, defense attorneys, ADAs, judges, the Pre-Arraignment Screening Unit, and other programs specified by the Department. You can find the renewal notices here: The Education and Assistance Corporations; The Education and Assistance Corporations; The Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services; Fund for the City of New York/Center for Court Innovation; and The Fortune Society.
