Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, IHEs, local and state governments, Tribes, for-profit organizations, and qualified individuals to research and evaluate elder and healthcare fraud. Required registrations may take several days to complete. Applications with early career and new investigators as PIs will receive special consideration.

With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for research and evaluation projects addressing two types of white-collar crime: 1) health care fraud and 2) elder fraud and financial exploitation. NIJ’s interest includes, but is not limited to, the use of computers and the Internet (cybercrime) in the commission of either of these types of white-collar crime. NIJ will support scientifically rigorous research and evaluation projects that will advance our understanding of these types of crime and effective approaches for identifying, preventing, investigating, and prosecuting them. This solicitation supports the U.S. Department of Justice’s priorities related to reducing crime, supporting prosecutors, and reducing victimization.

Funding may only be used to cover costs associated with evaluation or research. It may include reasonable costs such as those incurred by program personnel to support activities directly required for the execution of the evaluation or research (e.g., manual extraction of administrative records) or those associated with serving on an advisory board to provide input on analyses or interpretation of findings.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

In general, NIJ is authorized to make grants to, or enter into contracts or cooperative agreements with, States (including territories), units of local government, federally recognized Indian tribal governments that perform law enforcement functions (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for-profit organizations), institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education), and certain qualified individuals. Foreign governments, foreign organizations, and foreign colleges and universities are not eligible to apply.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

NIJ welcomes applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees).

The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering funding, managing the entire project, and monitoring and appropriately managing any subawards (“subgrants”). Under this solicitation, any particular applicant entity may submit more than one application, as long as each application proposes a different project in response to the solicitation. Also, an entity may be proposed as a subrecipient (subgrantee) in more than one application.

NIJ is interested in supporting researchers who are early in their careers and new to NIJ’s research grant portfolios, specifically non-tenured assistant professors, or equivalent full-time staff scientist positions in a research institution, who propose research on topics relevant to NIJ’s Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) and/or Office of Science and Technology (OST). To that end, NIJ may, in appropriate circumstances, give special consideration in award decisions to applications proposing such researchers as principal investigators (PIs).

For qualifications, see the RFP: https://nij.gov/funding/Documents/solicitations/NIJ-2019-15383.pdf#page=9

What will not be funded:
