Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs for research and evaluation efforts to improve the justice system’s response to human trafficking, particularly regarding minority women. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support research projects that have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States.
With this solicitation, NIJ continues 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 projects that — first and foremost — have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States. With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for research projects addressing the following priority areas:
NIJ will not consider proposals for research outside of these priority areas.
For the purposes of this solicitation, “trafficking in persons” (and/or “human trafficking,” “trafficking”) is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of: (1) subjection to a commercial sex act that is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; or (2) labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
NIJ seeks to promote researcher-survivor partnerships in response to this solicitation, and will consider these partnerships when making award selections. For the purposes of this solicitation, such a partnership would include a research team with survivor(s) and/or a survivor-led organization to conduct criminal justice research and/or evaluation that relates to the needs of the victim service community; with implications for local, state, tribal, and national practice or policy. The partnership may include working with a researcher or service provider with lived experience, or include a plan for mentoring or training survivor consultants to engage in future research on human trafficking and service provision.
