Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $99,637)

The purpose of this planning grant is to create a new tribal-researcher partnership that will develop a new and innovative criminal justice research project to study the restorative justice approach of circle peacemaking to address domestic violence (DV) issues. The results will be relevant to other tribes across Alaska and in the lower 48 who are seeking to address domestic violence, especially in rural and remote areas. The partnership will include the Organized Village of Kake and ELE Consulting, LLC. The tribal and research partners will work collaboratively to develop a research proposal that is rooted in indigenous CBPR principles, and that is rigorous in its design (including plans for the collection and analysis of reliable and valid data). The products of this capacity-building grant will include: 1) a research proposal submitted for funding; 2) a special report detailing the tribal-researcher partnership that captures the process and substance of the collaboration, lessons learned, challenges and successes experienced, overall reflections, and key issues that can help inform existing or future partnerships of a similar nature; 3) a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal; and 4) a non-technical summary of the manuscript in a readily accessible format for dissemination to a broad audience. Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law, and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR 200.210(a)(14). CA/NCF
