Massachusetts Parole Board (PAR) Pending anticipated addition of available beds, increase the number of parolees placed in a residential reentry program Target for FY2022 is to increase the number of parolees placed in a residential reentry program by 20%. Baseline: In FY 2021, there were 149 parolees placed in transitional housing beds via the residential reentry program (60 in the first half and another 89 in the second half of FY 2021).

In the first half of FY 2022 (July 2021 - Dec 2021), there were 84 parolees placed in transitional housing beds via the residential reentry program. Over the full FY 2022, we project ~ 168 parolees will be placed in transitional housing beds (84*2). This projected number for FY 2022 (i.e. 168 parolees) would imply that we will see an increase in the number between FY 2021 (i.e. the baseline) and FY 2022 by ~13% ((168-149)/149). 
     
Massachusetts Parole Board (PAR) Increase the percentage of eligible parolees who discharge from parole earlier as a result of earning compliance credits.

Baseline: In FY 2021, there were 229 compliance credit eligible parolees who discharged from parole earlier as a result of earning compliance credits.

In the first half of FY 2022 (July 2021 - Dec 2021), there were 118 eligible parolees who discharged from parole earlier as a result of earning compliance credits. Over the full FY 2022, we project ~ 236 eligible parolees (118*2) with early discharge due to compliance credits. This projected number for FY 2022 (i.e. 236 early discharges) would imply that we will see an increase in the number of early discharges between FY 2021 (i.e. the baseline) and FY 2022 by  ~3% ((236-229)/229).

Note: in FY 2021, out of all eligible for compliance credits, 67% of parolees earned compliance credits (229/341); over the full FY 2022, we project that proportion to go up so that 78% of all eligible for compliance credits earn compliance credits (236/302). This reflects an 11 percentage point increase from baseline.
