Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, for-profits, Tribes, agencies, and IHEs for research to inform official practice and policy regarding reoffending of juveniles in the justice system. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take time to complete.

NIJ is particularly interested in receiving applications that include one or more of the following elements:

  • Research on factors that predict juvenile reoffending and/or how patterns of juvenile reoffending vary by demographic characteristics, family structure, offense types, risk and protective factors, and geographic location. 
  • Research that examines alternative measures of juvenile reoffending and/or controls for changes in the type of offense, frequency of offenses, offense severity, time to new offense, and/or length of stay or supervision following a new offense.
  • Research that examines policy and practice factors that may affect juvenile reoffending rates such as jurisdictional age boundaries, how and when juveniles are assessed for risk to reoffend, access to services, and responses to technical violations and new offenses while youth are under supervision.
  • Research on juvenile reoffending that incorporates other youth outcome measures shown to moderate offending behavior such as educational attainment, employment, and mental health and well-being.
  • Research that improves the quality and accuracy of data on juvenile reoffending, including studies that develop strategies and tools that facilitate more efficient collection, linkage, and analysis of data.

NIJ is particularly interested in research that improves the capacity of jurisdiction(s) and relevant agencies to conduct analyses of juvenile reoffending with increasing independence for local performance measurement and/or research that develops tools or resources with practical application in broader contexts.

NIJ is also interested in applications that extend existing literature by diversifying samples, including by region, demographic profile, justice system structure and process, and policy climate. This is inclusive of state and local jurisdictions with largely urban juvenile justice systems as well as rural areas.

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

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, Evaluation and Technology (ORET). To that end, NIJ may, in appropriate circumstances, give special consideration in award decisions to applications proposing such researchers as principal investigators (PIs).
