Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs for research related to preventing terrorism in the United States. Funding is intended for studies that will primarily benefit, and have clear implications for, criminal justice agencies and their attendant communities at the state, local, and tribal levels. Eligible projects will apply an approach that engages researchers and practitioners in an active partnership to develop more effective solutions to specific problems and to produce transportable lessons and strategies that may help other localities with similar problems.

 NIJ is particularly interested in research responding to the following areas:

  1. Evaluations of programs and practices to prevent terrorism.
  2. Research to inform terrorism prevention efforts.
  3. Research on the reintegration of offenders to the community.

For details on the three priority areas, see the RFP: https://nij.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh171/files/media/document/NIJ-2020-17311.pdf#page=6

For information about program objectives and performance measures, see: https://nij.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh171/files/media/document/NIJ-2020-17311.pdf#page=12

Applications proposing activities in the following areas may be given priority consideration:

  • Addresses the specific challenges that rural communities face.
  • Encouraging program investments in economically distressed communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones).

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

In general, NIJ is authorized to make grants to, or enter into contracts or cooperative agreements with eligible entities as listed below:
- States (including territories);
- Units of local government;
- Federally recognized Indian tribal governments that perform law enforcement functions (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior);
- Nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and
for-profit organizations); and
- Institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education).

Foreign governments, foreign organizations, and foreign colleges and universities are not eligible to apply.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

NIJ will consider applications under which two-or-more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees). The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering the funding and managing the entire project.

NIJ is interested in supporting researchers who are early in their careers and new to NIJ’s research grant portfolios; specifically non-tenured assistant professors, or equivalent full-time staff scientist positions in a research institution, who propose research on topics relevant to NIJ’s Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) and/or Office of Science and Technology (OST). To that end, NIJ may, in appropriate circumstances, give special consideration in award decisions to applications proposing such researchers as principal investigators (PIs). For more information on qualifications for New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity applicants, see the RFP: https://nij.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh171/files/media/document/NIJ-2020-17311.pdf#page=10

- Programs or services unrelated to the scope of the research project or existing programs or services being evaluated.
- Training in support of programs or direct services unrelated to or associated with the proposed research project.
