NIJ seeks applications for research and evaluation to address knowledge gaps related to prison sexual violence. NIJ is particularly interested in research and evaluation on staff-on-inmate sexual misconduct. For this solicitation, correctional staff may include, but are not limited to, employees, contractors, volunteers, or any agency representatives. The goal of this research and evaluation is to increase our understanding and advance policy and practice aimed at reducing sexual violence in correctional facilities. Researchers are encouraged to form collaborations with practitioners so that research results inform responses to this issue.
