Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, for-profits, government agencies, IHEs, and tribes for research projects that address ethnic and racial inequities within the justice system. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations prior to applying. Preference is given to researchers of color and women. Funding is intended to support research on how to reduce disparities through public policy interventions at any point during the administration of justice.
The W.E.B. Du Bois Program supports quantitative and quantitative research that furthers the Department’s mission by advancing knowledge regarding the intersections of race, crime, violence, and the administration of justice within the United States. NIJ seeks applications for funding from two categories of researchers:
NIJ is interested in policy interventions that have the potential to reduce disparities at any point during the administration of justice for juveniles and/or adults. These interventions could include policing practices, access to defense resources, pretrial release practices, charging decisions, sanctions imposed, access to treatment services, post-release programming, or any other point at which disparity is evident. NIJ is particularly interested in identifying those interventions that have the greatest potential to positively intervene in an individual’s progress out of the justice system.
For more information about the above categories, see https://nij.ojp.gov/funding/O-NIJ-2021-171008.pdf#page=6.
The primary goal of this solicitation is to promote the fair administration of justice. Findings from this research program will assist state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to promote fairer justice systems, and increase the legitimacy of those systems, thus enhancing racial and ethnic communities’ trust in public safety. Secondary goals include advancing research methods and growing the field of well-trained researchers.
