National Inventory of the Collateral Consequences of Conviction Website https://niccc.csgjusticecenter.org/ Operated by the Council of State Governments. Collateral consequences are legal and regulatory sanctions and restrictions that limit or prohibit people with criminal records from accessing employment, occupational licensing, housing, voting, education, and other opportunities. Collateral consequences most frequently affect people who have been convicted of a crime, though in some states an arrest alone - even an arrest that does not result in a conviction - may trigger a collateral consequence. The National Inventory of Collateral Consequences of Conviction is a searchable database of the collateral consequences in all U.S. Jurisdictions.
