NIJ strives to support the development of objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women (VAW), promote justice for victims of crime, and enhance criminal justice responses. For that reason, this solicitation seeks applications for grant funding to conduct research and evaluation projects examining a broad range of topics, including the crimes of domestic (DV) and family violence (FV), homicide and other forms of violent death, intimate partner violence (IPV), rape, sex trafficking, sexual assault, stalking, and teen dating violence (TDV), also known as adolescent relationship abuse (ARA), along with the associated criminal justice system response, procedures, and policies.
This solicitation seeks to support the rigorous development of objective and independent knowledge and validated tools, and to disseminate them to stakeholders and policymakers to formulate strategies and practices to reduce VAW.
