NIJ seeks proposals for rigorous research and evaluation projects that inform our understanding of the impact of culture and climate on the ability of correctional agencies to achieve their missions—most fundamentally to maintain a safe, humane and secure environment for both staff and incarcerated individuals in the institutions that they manage; to recruit and retain staff; and to promote and sustain needed changes in their organizational cultures, operations, and programs to better achieve their missions.

The Office of Justice Program's Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has released a related solicitation for entities to provide training, technical assistance, and resources to correctional institutions in support of transforming prison cultures, climates, and space.
