Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs for research and evaluation efforts to improve the justice system’s response to human trafficking. Funding is intended to support research projects that have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States.
For the purposes of this solicitation, “trafficking in persons” (and/or “human trafficking,” “trafficking”) is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of: (1) subjection to a commercial sex act that is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; or (2) labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
NIJ seeks to promote researcher-survivor partnerships in response to this solicitation, and will consider these partnerships when making award selections. For the purposes of this solicitation, such a partnership would include a research team with survivor(s) and/or a survivor-led organization to conduct criminal justice research and/or evaluation that relates to the needs of the victim service community; with implications for local, state, tribal, and national practice or policy. The partnership may include working with a researcher or service provider with lived experience, or include a plan for mentoring or training survivor consultants to engage in future research on human trafficking and service provision.
