In collaboration with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), NIJ seeks applications for rigorous research and evaluation projects in three topical areas: 1) evaluation of programs that provide services for victims of crime; 2) research on supporting victims of community violence; and 3) financial costs of crime victimization. Applicants must submit proposals that address one of the three topic areas. NIJ will give special consideration to proposals with methods that include meaningful engagement with the people with lived experience of the subject of study, including but not limited to, justice practitioners, community members, crime victims, service providers, and individuals who have experienced justice system involvement. Applicants are encouraged to propose multidisciplinary research teams to build on the complementary strengths of different methods and areas of subject matter expertise. NIJ also seeks proposals that include consideration and measurement of issues of diversity, discrimination, and bias across age, gender and gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation, as applicable. Applications proposing research involving partnerships with criminal justice or other agencies, should include a letter of support, signed by an appropriate decision-making authority from each proposed, partnering agency. A letter of support should include the partnering agency’s acknowledgement that de-identified data derived from, provided to, or obtained through an award funded by NIJ will be archived by the grant recipient with the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) at the conclusion of the award.
