NIJ is seeking proposals for research and evaluation on violence against women, specifically intimate partner and sexual violence (PDF, 30 pages). While NIJ will accept other topics, the agency is interested in proposals that examine the effectiveness of specialized police and court-based units, services, and methods related to intimate partner and sexual violence. NIJ is also interested in research on the development, adaptation, and testing of screening tools used in family court proceedings—specifically for cases involving child custody—to identify intimate partner violence.
