Grants to USA and territories units of government, tribal governments, IHEs, businesses, and nonprofit organizations to conduct research in the areas of promoting justice and reducing violence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The ultimate goal of this solicitation is to reduce violence against women through the development of evidence-based knowledge to inform the formulation of effective strategies to best prevent and respond to such crime and violence.
NIJ strives to support objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women (VAW) (including violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls), promote justice for victims of crime, and enhance criminal justice responses. For that reason, this solicitation seeks applications for grant funding to conduct research and evaluation projects examining a broad range of topics including the crimes of homicide, intimate partner and dating violence, rape and sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking, along with the associated criminal justice system response, procedures, and policies.
This year, NIJ is particularly interested in research responding to the following two priority areas:
NIJ’s Violence Against Women and Family Violence Research and Evaluation program seeks to promote the safety of women and family members, and to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system's response to such crimes. Key objectives of the program include estimating the scope of the problem; identifying causes and consequences; evaluating promising prevention and intervention programs; compiling and disseminating research findings; and partnering to promote and facilitate collaboration, coordination, and cooperation among a wide variety of disciplines. A broad range of topics is covered under this program that touch on a wide variety of public health and safety topics as well as criminal justice challenges, including the availability of legal and victim support services, the effectiveness of prevention and intervention programs, and the impact of such crimes over time.
In addition to the priority areas, NIJ will also prioritize studies that conduct replication research, longitudinal research, and/or include advanced statistical modeling, applied policy analysis, interdisciplinary research teams, and/or researcher-practitioner partnerships.
NIJ seeks either: (1) formative evaluations and evaluability assessments or (2) outcome evaluations of VAW programs. For more information, see https://nij.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh171/files/media/document/NIJ-2020-17331.pdf#page=6.
