NIJ FY18 Research on Reducing Violence in Communities

You are here

**This solicitation may be a good fit for Public Defender offices with existing or future programs and partnerships around reentry work. Reentry programming can and should be connected to reductions in community violence and increases in public safety.**

The purpose of this solicitation is to support research to produce sustainable community-level reductions in violence. NIJ seeks to develop scientific evidence and build practical knowledge of the factors that contribute to achieving enduring violence reductions in communities. NIJ is interested in receiving proposals for research with both empirical and theory-building elements that will lead to practical and generalizable recommendations. These recommendations should inform community-focused efforts to produce substantial and lasting violence reductions in communities that have suffered from persistently high levels of violence.
