Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, for-profits, government agencies, IHEs, and certain qualified individuals to carry out research addressing stalking, dating violence, and gender-based assault. Applicants are advised to create or verify the required registrations well in advance of the deadline. The purpose of this program is to improve strategies to prevent and respond to violent crimes against women.
The goals of the National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) Violence Against Women (VAW) program of research are to improve knowledge and understanding of intimate partner and dating violence, stalking, and sexual violence through science to best prevent and respond to these crimes. NIJ strives to support objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women, promote justice for victims of crime, and enhance criminal justice responses to such crimes. This call for proposals is tied to the U.S. Department of Justice priorities related to reducing violent crime, responding to victimization, protecting police officers, and enhancing investigations and prosecution.
This year, NIJ is particularly interested in research responding to the following priority areas:
1) Evaluation research on VAW programs.
2) VAW research.
3) Violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls research.
For details on each of these priority areas, see the RFP document: https://nij.gov/funding/Documents/solicitations/NIJ-2019-15365.pdf#page=6
In addition to the categories listed above, 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.
For over forty years, NIJ has invested more than $130 million dollars in VAW research and evaluation. The mission of the program is to promote the safety of women, children, and family members, and to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system's response. 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. NIJ funded research touches on a wide variety of public safety concerns including domestic violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, and teen dating violence, 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.
