Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, states, local and tribal agencies, for-profits, IHEs, and individuals for assessments of diverse existing victim services. Funding priority may be given to researchers early in their careers. Funding is intended to improve understanding of victim services and to fill critical research gaps.
In collaboration with OVC, NIJ seeks proposals for formative evaluations and evaluability assessments of victims of crime service programs. NIJ is interested in evaluations of different types of victim services including, but not limited to, programs embedded in hospitals/trauma centers; umbrella/network organizations; one-stop victim services programs; and/or programs embedded in criminal justice agencies.
NIJ recognizes that many victim services programs may not be ready to support rigorous outcome evaluations, and as such, a phased approach is needed. Applicants should plan to conduct a formative evaluation, as well as an evaluability assessment to determine whether an outcome evaluation of the program or model is possible. Applicants should consider the diverse array of victim service programs.
Evaluation designs should include:
- Descriptive research of victim service program(s) leading to the development of a logic model(s);
- Evaluability and research capacity assessments of programs to be studied, including but not limited to access to data and sample, consent procedures, and agency burden;
- Development of implementation guide for specific program(s); and
- Development of instruments or measures to test fidelity of program(s).
Note: Funding under this solicitation may only be used to cover costs associated with the evaluation, but may include reasonable costs incurred by program personnel to support activities directly and exclusively required for the execution of the evaluation (e.g., manual extraction of administrative records).
