NIJ is seeking applications for the funding of research and program evaluation projects that inform efforts to prevent and reduce street gang activity, violence, and victimization in the United States. Gangs and gang members are responsible for a large amount of crime and violence in many localities, and are responsible for a disproportionate share in those communities most afflicted by crime and violence. NIJ will support scientifically rigorous research and evaluation projects designed to produce findings with high practical utility for youth and adult gang prevention, intervention, enforcement, or reentry strategies. This solicitation supports the U.S. Department of Justice's priority to prevent and reduce victimization and the wide range of criminal activities that gangs commit.
