Description

Important Notices

Executed Agreements: Many of our solicitations encourage research partnerships and require applicants to include a strong letter of support, signed by an appropriate decision-making authority from each proposed partnering entity. NIJ continues to strongly encourage prospective applicants to submit executed agreements necessary to carrying out the work proposed with applications, if they can be obtained, but with an understanding of the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, NIJ will accept applications without them. Applicants selected for award will be required to submit completed agreements by January 1, 2021. Research partner agreements are formal written agreements with any research partner providing, generating, or substantively contributing to data used for research activities funded through this grant award. Funds will be withheld until such agreements have been received.

Due Date Extension: OJP is actively assessing the potential impacts that COVID-19 may have on the FY 2020 grant application process.  At this time, solicitations with application due dates before April 1st will have a 2 week extension for submission.  We will continue to monitor the situation and determine if additional adjustments to closing dates will be needed.

Because most solicitations are competitive, we cannot have individual conversations concerning the solicitation with prospective applicants. Any questions concerning open solicitation should be submitted to the NCJRS Response Center by phone 1-800-851-3420 (TTY at 301-240-6310 for hearing impaired only), by email at [email protected], or via web chat.
