Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, IHEs, local and state governments, Tribes, for-profit organizations, and qualified individuals to research and evaluate elder and healthcare fraud. Required registrations may take several days to complete. Applications with early career and new investigators as PIs will receive special consideration.
With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for research and evaluation projects addressing two types of white-collar crime: 1) health care fraud and 2) elder fraud and financial exploitation. NIJ’s interest includes, but is not limited to, the use of computers and the Internet (cybercrime) in the commission of either of these types of white-collar crime. NIJ will support scientifically rigorous research and evaluation projects that will advance our understanding of these types of crime and effective approaches for identifying, preventing, investigating, and prosecuting them. This solicitation supports the U.S. Department of Justice’s priorities related to reducing crime, supporting prosecutors, and reducing victimization.
Funding may only be used to cover costs associated with evaluation or research. It may include reasonable costs such as those incurred by program personnel to support activities directly required for the execution of the evaluation or research (e.g., manual extraction of administrative records) or those associated with serving on an advisory board to provide input on analyses or interpretation of findings.
