Offering Research Awards, Each Worth $200,000-$400,000

5/10/2006:   The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is offering at least 10 grant awards, each totaling $200,000-$400,000, to support original, rigorous, scientific research and evaluation studies to inform the disciplines of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention and child maltreatment prevention and intervention.

The objectives of the Field-Initiated Research and Evaluation Program are to
  • promote and support traditional or innovative research and evaluation in the disciplines of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention and child maltreatment,
  • conceptualize and investigate new research questions in juvenile justice and child maltreatment,
  • develop new methodological approaches for addressing priority issues and concerns in the disciplines of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention and child maltreatment, and
  • obtain knowledge and information that can be used to develop effective programs, policies, and strategies for reducing and preventing juvenile delinquency and child maltreatment.
Funding will not be designated to support training, program development, or the provision of services. The funds may be used, however, to evaluate training, prevention, and intervention programs. The deadline to apply is June 19.
