Default Do Federal inmates with detainers still qualify for 1st Step Act?

Hi, this is my 1st post. My uncle was sentenced to federal time in 2017 and had an open case with the state on a separate charge. He was sentenced to 90 months in the feds. Then last week got 7 years to run concurrent with the feds and 3 years consecutive as state time. His date on the BOP website states Feb 2023. To my knowledge he no longer is applicable for RDAP or halfway house because of the detainer. Therefore he will get out in Feb 2023 and then be transferred to state custody and finish his 3 years there. The 3 years was a mandotory minimum resulting in him coming home in 2026 in my opinion. He states that his updated good time hasnt be calculated which is true and that with the 1st Step Act he will get additional time for programs he completes. Do inmates with detainees still qualify for 1sr Step Act?

I will research this. I do know that any time served before the inmate gets to the designation does not count (Good Time is untouched.)

He was in Federal Custody he was at Hazelton after his federal sentencing in 2017 up until August 2019 when the state came and bought him back for sentencing for a charge from 2016. He is now waiting at the county jail to go back to the Feds.

To make it simple, PATTERN, the risk assessment test, has to be administered before the count starts. Obviously, the inmate needs to be in their designated facility also. At this point, your uncle is not there yet.
