NIJ is pleased to announce that it is seeking applications for funding to participate in an action research project designed for State and local jurisdictions that are struggling with large quantities of untested sexual assault kits. The purpose of this study is to understand the underlying nature of the problem and to identify effective and sustainable solutions.
The action research project will be conducted in two phases. The first phase will be a six-month planning grant in which the teams will come together, conduct an initial assessment of the problem, and develop a working plan for implementing the remainder of the action research steps in the second phase of the project. This solicitation is for the first phase of the project only.
