Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA university for projects to research law enforcement practices. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for research projects to establish the degree to which law enforcement practices for preventing and responding to the sex trafficking of minors have changed since the adoption of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. This program furthers the Department’s mission by sponsoring research to provide objective, independent, evidence-based knowledge and tools to meet the challenges of crime and justice, particularly at the state and local levels.

With this solicitation, NIJ aims to better understand how law enforcement practice with regard to preventing and responding to the sex trafficking of minors has evolved since passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. NIJ is specifically interested in understanding how widely law enforcement agencies have adopted practices that are based on the perspective that the minor is a victim as opposed to a delinquent, and the challenges that agencies have faced in adopting such practices. Applications that do not propose to address these two topical areas will not be considered.

Applications proposing research involving partnerships with criminal justice or other agencies must include a strong letter of support signed by an appropriate decision-making authority from each proposed, partnering agency. A letter of support must include the partnering agency’s acknowledgement that the awardee will archive de-identified data provided through this project in the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) at the conclusion of the award. If selected for an award, applicants will be expected to have a formal agreement in place with partnering agencies by January 1, 2021. That agreement must include provisions to meet the data archiving requirements of the award. In rare circumstances, for example, where law prohibits the archiving of agency data, NIJ may agree to a successful applicant creating and archiving an appropriate synthetic dataset. Those circumstances will be rare, decided by NIJ on a case-by-case basis, and will require extensive documentation and justification for exceptions to be made.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadline: 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 26, 2020

To be considered timely, an application must be submitted by the application deadline using Grants.gov, and the applicant must have received a validation message from Grants.gov that indicates successful and timely submission. OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date, to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct in a timely fashion any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.

Applicants may submit an application under only one purpose area.

Prior to Registering in Grants.gov:
- Acquire a DUNS Number
- Acquire or renew registration with SAM: If the applicant already has an Employer Identification Number (EIN), the SAM registration will take up to 2 weeks to become active. If the applicant does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow 2 to 5 weeks for obtaining an EIN from the Internal Revenue Service. If the entity does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow two to five weeks for obtaining the information from the Internal Revenue Service when requesting the EIN via phone, fax, mail or Internet.

Registering with Grants.gov is a one-time process; however, processing delays may occur, and it can take several weeks for first-time registrants to receive confirmation of registration and a user password. OJP encourages applicants to register several weeks before the application submission deadline. In addition, OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date, in order to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct in a timely fashion any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.
