Community-Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative (CVIPI) Research, Evaluation, and Associated Training & Technical Assistance Support

With this solicitation, NIJ seeks applications for funding for rigorous, independent evaluation projects funded under the OJP Community-Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative (CVIPI). This solicitation includes two funding categories: 1) Evaluation research of programmatic sites funded under the OJP FY23 and FY24 CVIPI solicitations and 2) evaluation research of other community-violence programs.

The OJP Community-Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative (CVIPI) provides resources to support evidence-informed violence intervention and prevention programs in communities across the United States. Specifically, CVIPI seeks to prevent and reduce violent crime in communities by supporting comprehensive, evidence-based violence intervention and prevention programs based on partnerships among community residents, local government agencies, victim service providers, community-based organizations, law enforcement, hospitals, researchers, and other community stakeholders. CVIPI is administered through a collaboration between OJP's Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and Office for Victims of Crime. The primary role of NIJ in CVIPI is to support independent, rigorous evaluations of projects funded under the OJP CVIPI solicitation.  

Deadline: June 18, 2024
