Funding Opportunity: Youth Participatory Action Research with Children of Incarcerated Parents

The Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention have issued a Call for Research Proposals to advance youth participatory action research (YPAR) on issues affecting children and youth who have or have had an incarcerated parent (COIP) in order to improve practices and support policymakers and practitioners in this field.

  • Constitute new, original work, to be submitted to a professional conference, submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, and submitted as a research brief to be published on youth.gov/coip; and
  • Be presented by youth and the lead researcher at a virtual meeting of federal staff, sponsored by the Interagency Working Group.

Two (2) researchers will receive a contract of up to $50,000. This amount includes travel expenses to a professional conference where researchers will present their work. Researchers may use no more than $5,000 for travel expenses.
