Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA IHE for research to lessen trauma for children who are victims of crimes. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to create a body of research that will enable an improved response to and treatment of child pornography victims.

NIJ seeks proposals for funding from accredited research universities to carry out a single research project on reducing trauma for child pornography victims that will produce a report with concrete recommendations for improving and synchronizing law enforcement best practices for ensuring child victims’ well-being during and after the investigation into the crime. The produced report will address issues related to referrals, access, and utilization of services for child victims, and provide recommendations for reducing trauma and improving child victim outcomes.

NIJ seeks proposals for a single research project with multiple components to address the following interrelated research questions:

  • What are the common traumatic consequences of being a victim of CSEM? How do these consequences vary by age of victim, form and duration of victimization, relationship to the perpetrator(s), and case outcomes? To what extent are CSEM victims likely to have been exposed to multiple traumatic events (i.e., complex trauma, polyvictimization)? 
  • What are the common practices currently in use by law enforcement and their partners to assess and respond to the traumatic experiences of child victims, and to mitigate the potential for further harm to child victims from the initial disclosure of the crime, the investigation, or other aspects of the criminal justice system? To what extent are these practices responsive to the traumatic experiences and service needs of CSEM victims?
  • To what degree are appropriate services and effective programs available for CSEM victims, and what factors beyond availability influence the utilization of services? 
  • What specific and practical steps should law enforcement and criminal justice agencies take to improve victim-centered and trauma-informed responses to CSEM victims? 

NIJ is particularly interested in receiving rigorous, mixed-method research proposals that move beyond convenience sampling, and reliance on single data collection methods. In describing proposed research methods, applicants should clearly describe plans for maximizing the scientific rigor of quantitative and qualitative research methods and analysis strategies. Applicants should describe the strengths and limitations of the proposed project design with detailed discussion of issues related to generalizability and validity.

In addition to a final research report and scholarly products, NIJ expects applicants to produce one or more tailored products for appropriate audiences in law enforcement and criminal justice, and include a dissemination plan that has a high probability of reaching and influencing such audiences.

NIJ is interested in supporting researchers who are early in their careers and new to NIJ’s research grant portfolios, specifically non-tenured assistant professors, or equivalent full-time staff scientist positions in a research institution, who propose research on topics relevant to NIJ’s Office of Research, Evaluation, and Technology (ORET). To that end, NIJ may give special consideration in award decisions to applications proposing such researchers as principal investigators (PIs) in certain circumstances. To qualify, the proposed PI must at the time of application submission:
- Hold a non-tenured assistant professor appointment at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States or an equivalent full-time staff scientist position at a research institution in the United States.
- Have completed a terminal degree or post-graduate clinical training within the four (4) years prior to September 30, 2021.
- Have never previously received NIJ funding as a PI on a research project with the exception of Graduate Research Fellows or Data Resources Program grantees.
If seeking to be considered for the New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity, the applicant should identify that they are submitting a New Investigator/Early Career proposal on the title page of the application.

Foreign colleges and universities are not eligible to apply.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

NIJ will consider applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees).

What will not be funded:
- Applications primarily to purchase equipment, materials, or supplies. (A budget may include these items if they are necessary to conduct research, development, demonstration, evaluation, or analysis.)
- Applications that are not responsive to the purposes of this specific solicitation.
