Event Dates
Event Duration
1 hour

This webinar will provide an overview of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) FY 2024 Research and Evaluation on Youth Justice Topics solicitation. In collaboration with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, NIJ seeks applications for research and evaluation projects that inform policy and practice in the field of youth justice and delinquency prevention.

Specifically, this solicitation seeks proposals for studies that advance knowledge and understanding in the following two categories:

  1. Youth Justice Reinvestment Studies which evaluate the effectiveness, including cost-effectiveness, of youth justice system reforms and subsequent reinvestments into programs that serve youth in their communities (prioritizing collaborative partnerships between community-based organizations and youth justice systems).
  2. Prevention and Intervention Program Effectiveness Studies which evaluate the effectiveness of school and community-based (a) delinquency prevention programs, (b) intervention programs for youth engaged in delinquent behavior, and (c) intervention programs for youth who have been victimized by abuse and/or experienced trauma.

In FY 2024, applications proposing research outside of these two specified categories will not be considered.

Date Created: March 6, 2024
