Description

This program will support methodologically rigorous research and evaluations that inform programs, policies, and strategies consistent with the Department of Justice's mission. OJJDP will fund field-initiated studies with practical implications for efforts to prevent and reduce youth violence (including gun and gang violence) and violence exposure at the community level. This solicitation encourages researchers to propose studies that aim to identify and evaluate dissemination and implementation approaches that promote efficient and effective community level adoption and sustainability of research-tested youth violence prevention and control strategies. It also encourages investigations to evaluate the effectiveness (including cost-effectiveness) of community-based violence prevention programs with a fully developed and documented program model that have not yet been subject to rigorous evaluation.
