Research on Measurement of Teen Dating Violence

U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), National Institute of Justice (NIJ)


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #166732

Grant Description

Grants to USA, territories, and tribal agencies, nonprofits, businesses, qualified individuals, and IHEs for research related to violence in teen relationships. Applicants are encouraged to register to apply several weeks before the application submission deadline. Research will improve knowledge and understanding of violence in teen dating, intimate partner violence, and gender-based assault.

NIJ strives to provide objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women and girls, and promote justice for victims. The objectives of this solicitation are to fund high-quality research projects that advance the accurate and developmentally appropriate measurement of dating violence perpetration and victimization among adolescents and young adults.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Experimental studies that compare different measurement approaches such as wording and ordering.
• Studies that use qualitative or cognitive interviewing techniques in attempts to place youth responses to standard behavioral measures in context.
• Studies combining existing data sets that use similar behavioral measures to examine potential methodological questions such as:
- Item-level analyses, such as the use of item response theory (IRT), to examine differential validity, sensitivity, and specificity.
- Investigate the measurement invariance of specific acts as they relate to a stable construct over the lifespan.
• Studies that explore the use of innovative techniques for survey and data collection.
• Studies that explore the appropriateness of existing behavioral measures for use with cultural subgroups.
• Studies that seek to develop and pilot test new, nonbehavioral measures such as episode based information.

NIJ is also interested in applications that build on the findings of the recently completed concept mapping study (see the full report and executive summary attached).

NIJ welcomes applications that involve two or more entities, however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipient(s). The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for conducting and leading the research. If successful, the applicant will be responsible for monitoring and appropriately managing any subrecipients or, as applicable, for administering any procurement subcontracts that would receive federal program funds from the applicant under the award.

Pre-proposal Conference:

In order to better understand administrative requirements and cost principles, award applicants are encouraged to enroll, at no charge, in the Department of Justice Grants Financial Management Online Training available here: http://gfm.webfirst.com/.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants must register in and submit applications through Grants.gov, a “one-stop storefront” to find federal funding opportunities and apply for funding. Registering with Grants.gov is a one-time process; however, processing delays may occur, and it can take several weeks for first-time registrants to receive confirmation and a user password. OJP encourages applicants to register several weeks before the application submission deadline.

In addition, OJP urges applicants to submit applications 72 hours prior to the application due date to allow time to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct in a timely fashion any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.

If the applicant is proposing a project that reasonably could be conducted in discrete phases, with each phase resulting in completion of one or more significant, defined milestones, then NIJ strongly recommends that the applicant structure the application—specifically including the narrative, expected scholarly products, timelines/milestones, and budget detail worksheet and budget narrative—to clearly set out each phase. (This is particularly the case if the applicant proposes a project that will exceed—in cost or length of project period—the amount or length anticipated for an individual award (or awards) under this solicitation.)

Given limitations on the availability to NIJ of funds for research, development, and evaluation awards, this information will assist NIJ in considering whether partial funding of proposals that would not receive full funding would be productive. (If NIJ elects to fund only certain phases of a proposed project in FY 2016, the expected scholarly products from the partial-funding award may, in some cases, vary from those described above.)

An award made by NIJ under this solicitation may account for up to 100 percent of the total cost of the project. The application should indicate whether it is feasible for the applicant to contribute cash, facilities, or services as non-federal support for the project. The application should identify generally any such contributions that the applicant expects to make and the proposed budget should indicate in detail which items, if any, will be supported with non-federal contributions.

If a successful application proposes a voluntary match amount, and OJP approves the budget, the total match amount incorporated into the approved budget becomes mandatory and subject to audit.
