Grants to USA and territories state, local, and tribal governments, nonprofits, for-profits, and IHEs for research related to preventing terrorism in the United States. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Special consideration may be given to projects led by early career and new investigators, as well as projects that directly benefit federally designated Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ).
Applicants should propose research projects that will primarily benefit, and have clear implications for, criminal justice agencies and their attendant communities at the state, local, and tribal levels. NIJ is particularly interested in research responding to the following areas:
1. Evaluations of programs and practices to prevent terrorism.
2. Research to inform terrorism prevention efforts.
3. Research on the reintegration of offenders to the community.
Funded projects will apply an approach that engages researchers and practitioners in an active partnership to develop more effective solutions to specific problems and to produce transportable lessons and strategies that may help other localities with similar problems.
For details on the three priority areas, see the RFP: https://nij.gov/funding/Documents/solicitations/NIJ-2019-15303.pdf#page=6
New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity
NIJ is interested in supporting researchers who are early in their careers and new to NIJ’s research grant portfolios; specifically non-tenured assistant professors, or equivalent full-time staff scientist positions in a research institution, who propose research on topics relevant to NIJ’s Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) and/or Office of Science and Technology (OST). To that end, NIJ may, in appropriate circumstances, give special consideration in award decisions to applications proposing such researchers as principal investigators (PIs).
For more information on qualifications for New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity applicants, see the RFP: https://nij.gov/funding/Documents/solicitations/NIJ-2019-15303.pdf#page=9
Encouraging Program Investments in Economically-Distressed Communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones)
Under this program, OJP will, as appropriate, give priority consideration in award decisions to applications that propose projects that directly benefit federally designated Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ). In order to assist NIJ in considering this factor, applicants should include information in the application that specifies how the project will generate information about enhancing public safety in the specified QOZs. For resources on QOZs, and for a current list of designated QOZs, see the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s resource webpage, accessible at https://www.cdfifund.gov/pages/opportunity-zones.aspx.
