The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is seeking applications for the 2019 Research and Evaluation on Promising Reentry Initiatives program, which aims to generate knowledge on best practices in reentry initiatives and support the rigorous examination of innovative reentry initiatives, including those in rural communities.
NIJ is interested in supporting evaluations of innovative reentry initiatives that focus on youth, young adults (aged 18-24), and adults with a moderate-to-high risk of reoffending. A particular focus on the risk of reoffending with a violent crime is encouraged. These initiatives may be applicable to juvenile residential facilities, institutional, and/or community corrections. Proposals that seek to evaluate reentry initiatives funded by the Second Chance Act or other reentry initiatives will be considered.
The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by May 13.
