Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, local and state government agencies, and public and private IHEs for research that addresses the impact of health, wellness, and safety in law enforcement. Funding is intended for programs that involve the measurement of a combination of behavioral, psychological, biological, and physiological responses among individuals working in the criminal justice system.

With this solicitation, NIJ seeks applications for funding of multidisciplinary research projects addressing any of these five topics:

  1. Resiliency and Recovery of Law Enforcement agencies from Singular, Extreme Traumatic Events.
  2. Impact of Organizational Stressors on Officer Health and Wellness.
  3. Effects of Pre-Career Interventions and Subsequent Reminders in Modulating Mental, Physical, and Social Responses to Stressors in Law Enforcement Officers.
  4. Community Hostility, Officer Health, and Effects on Policing.
  5. Understanding the Increased Rate of Assaults on Law Enforcement Officers

All five topics lend themselves to multidisciplinary research from behavioral science, neuroscience, operations research, and the social science communities. Research proposed on topics outside the five topics identified in this solicitation will not be considered. Applications must specify which of the topics they are responding to in the title of their proposal.

This solicitation supports the U.S. Department of Justice’s priority of protecting officers and other public safety personnel. This solicitation also supports the following objectives of the NIJ Safety, Health, and Wellness Strategic Research Plan 2016-2021 (August 2016):

  • Objective I.2: Support development, and promote strategies, policies, practices, and technologies that enhance the safety of criminal justice personnel.
  • Objective I.4: Develop policies, strategies, and technologies to promote safety in criminal justice interactions with the public.
  • Objective II.1: Promote research to improve the physical and mental health of individuals working in the criminal justice system.
  • Objective II.2: Study both trauma and suicide among criminal justice employees.
  • Objective II.4: Promote science-based tools and strategies to monitor physical and mental health.

NIJ is committed to building a knowledge base focused on the safety, health, and wellness of individuals employed in criminal justice occupations, individuals under the supervision of the criminal justice system, and members of the public as they interact with the system.
