Description

Deadline Notice

The deadline to complete and submit your SF-424 and an SF-LLL in Grants.gov has passed. If you have not submitted those forms, you now are unable to apply for an award under this solicitation in JustGrants.

With this solicitation, NIJ in collaboration with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications for funding to conduct a multisite impact and cost-efficiency evaluation of veterans treatment courts (VTCs). NIJ proposes to make one award as a cooperative agreement under this solicitation. The awardee will lead a cross-site evaluation involving court and research partners in up to six VTCs across the U.S. Incorporating experimental design and other research methods, the process, impact, and cost study will examine:

  • Program impact on relapse, recidivism, and other outcomes
  • For whom are programs effective
  • Which program elements are effective
  • Whether programs are cost-efficient

Topics of interest include veterans with violent offense histories, mental health and comorbidity, leveraging technology, peer mentoring, and equitable service access. The 5-year period of performance will begin with a planning phase to confirm the research protocol including VTC site selection.

Date Created: October 21, 2021
