Funding Agency:
Department of Justice

NIC, in partnership with BJA, is soliciting proposals for a 12-month cooperative agreement to provide local jails, prisons, and other confinement settings with CIT training. The awardee will accomplish tasks that address the following four components: (1) review and revise the existing 40-hour CIT classroombased training, (2) develop a CIT train-the-trainer curriculum that addresses major issues that agencies face, including those issues faced by rural and tribal agencies, (3) establish a refresher CIT training for agencies that have implemented the NIC CIT partnership training, and (4) deliver the newly developed and revised training programs to selected agencies. The curriculum is to apply the Instructional Theory Into Practice (ITIP) model of instruction. All deliverables are to be reviewed and approved both by NIC and BJA.

Only one (1) application will be accepted from a submitting organization. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact fundopps@duke.edu as early as possible.

Deadline: Aug. 17, 2023
