Description

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.
