In collaboration with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), NIJ seeks to build upon its research and evaluation efforts to better understand, prevent, and respond to trafficking in persons in the United States. Applicants should propose research and evaluation projects that — first and foremost — have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States. NIJ seeks proposals for research and evaluation projects addressing the following topical areas: 1) research and evaluation on human trafficking victim assistance and service provision, 2) research on forced criminality, and 3) human trafficking prevalence estimation. Applications proposing projects other than in these three areas will not be considered.
