Community Corrections Alternative Program
Community Corrections Alternative Program (CCAP) is an alternative program to incarceration, giving probationers and parolees the opportunity to engage in treatment, education, vocational training, and employment in a structured setting in order to promote long lasting public safety.
Participants must be on supervision for the duration of the program, if accepted. After successfully completing the program, they will have a recommended period of at least one year of regular supervision.

How it Works
The Virginia Parole Board or a circuit court judge can order a CCAP evaluation. The case is then assigned to a probation and parole officer who will meet with the supervisee to complete the necessary paperwork. They will submit a completed CCAP Referral packet to the CCAP Referral Unit for review for eligibility.
The CCAP Referral Unit works in collaboration with the probation and parole officer, as well as mental health and health services staff, to gather any additional information needed to assess participants' suitability for CCAP on a case-by-case basis. Based on the participant's risks and needs, the CCAP Referral Unit will identify whether CCAP acceptance or alternative programming within the community will provide the best opportunity for re-entry.
Recommendations sent to the court
Before a sentencing or show cause hearing, the assigned probation officer will provide the court with the results and recommendations from the CCAP suitability evaluation.
If accepted and sentenced, participant will enter CCAP

CCAP program length is based upon the probationer/parolee's needs. It typically is 22-48 weeks.
