With this solicitation, NIJ requests proposals for rigorous research to examine reentry initiatives that incorporate promising practices, strategies, or programs.  NIJ is interested in supporting evaluations of innovative reentry initiatives that focus on offenders with a moderate-to-high risk of reoffending. 

The primary goal of this solicitation is to support the rigorous examination of innovative reentry initiatives, including those in rural communities. NIJ is particularly interested in proposals addressing reentry initiatives (either a program or plan) that begin in institutional settings and continue through release.  Preference in award decisions will be given to proposals for evaluations of an innovative reentry initiative across multiple sites using randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
