The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is seeking applications for the funding of research and program evaluation projects that inform efforts to prevent and reduce gang activity, violence, and victimization in the United States. Gangs and gang members are responsible for a large amount of crime and violence in many localities; and are responsible for a disproportionate share in those communities most afflicted by crime and violence. NIJ will support scientifically rigorous research and evaluation projects designed to produce findings with high practical utility for youth and adult gang prevention, intervention, enforcement, or reentry strategies.
The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due April 29.
