With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for rigorous research and evaluation projects targeted toward developing a better understanding of the domestic radicalization phenomenon, and advancing evidence-based strategies for effective intervention and prevention. Under this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals in four topics as they relate to radicalization to violent extremism:
- Research to inform terrorism prevention efforts.
- Research on disengagement, deradicalization and reintegration.
- Evaluations of programs and practices.
- Research on countering mis-, dis-, and mal-information.
NIJ is particularly interested in proposals that explore the radicalization of Americans to white nationalist extremism and identify and advance evidence-based strategies for effective intervention and prevention.

The solicitation does not place limits on the number of proposed staff, such as PIs, Co-PIs, or Co-Investigators.
Consideration for the new investigator/early career opportunity is restricted to applications with proposed PI(s) meeting the qualifications specified under the New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity section of the solicitation. The PI is expected to hold the senior leadership role on the proposed project. That leadership role should be clearly reflected in the applicant’s proposal, for example in comparative time allocation. Other proposed subordinate key personnel on the project need not meet the new investigator/ early career opportunity qualifications.
NIJ has changed the anticipated total amount to be awarded under the solicitation from $10,000,000 to $6,000,000 (page 10).
On page 8, under "New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity," the second bullet now correctly reads:
- Have completed a terminal degree or post-graduate clinical training within the six (6) years prior to September 30, 2022.
FAQs regarding Co-PIs and new investigator/ early career opportunity added.
NIJ has updated the Statutory Authority section.
