Grant to a USA and territories institution of higher education to design ways to reduce incarceration rates due to technical violations of probation and parole. Funding is intended for the development and evaluation of models that will expedite the process of judicial review for individuals awaiting revocation of their parole or probation for technical violations of their supervision, while linking them to evidence-based services that address the root causes of recidivism.
NIJ strongly encourages applicants to propose randomized controlled trials as the evaluation method for assessing effectiveness. Successful applicants should work to produce and test models that can be replicated on a national scale. Ideally, NIJ seeks development of a single model that can be replicated on a national scale.
Successful applicants should expect to meet regularly with NIJ staff — either in-person or remotely — and provide periodic updates of evaluation progress, in addition to standard reporting requirements. These updates (frequency to be determined by NIJ staff in consultation with the successful applicant) may include information on programmatic services delivered, fidelity measures, current sample enrollment, and evaluation activities.
Findings from this research program will assist state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to promote successful reentry, and thus reduce violent crime and protect public safety personnel.
The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. In FY 2021, OJP will give priority consideration in award decisions to applications that demonstrate ways in which their projects will advance one or more of these areas. In addition, OJP will give priority consideration, if applicable, to applicants that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties. For more information about how to receive priority consideration under the poverty priority, see:
