Procedural Justice-Informed Alternatives to Contempt (PJAC)

Promotional image

The PJAC demonstration project seeks to increase parents’ compliance with child support orders by increasing trust and confidence in the child support agency and its processes. PJAC is a five-year project that will allow grantees to examine whether incorporating procedural justice principles into child support business practices increases reliable child support payments. The goals are to increase reliable payments, reduce arrears, minimize the need for continued enforcement actions and sanctions, and reduce the inappropriate use of contempt.

For details, read the funding opportunity announcement for the PJAC Project and PJAC Evaluation.

On September 30, 2016, OCSE awarded Section 1115 grants for PJAC to Arizona, California, Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia.

Georgia was awarded a grant to manage the evaluation of the PJAC Project.
