With this solicitation, NIJ requests proposals for rigorous research and evaluation projects to examine reentry initiatives that incorporate promising practices, strategies, or programs. NIJ is interested in supporting multi-site, randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluations of innovative reentry initiatives that: Are specifically designed to address violent, habitual recidivism. Are initiated during an individual’s incarceration and continue in the community. Address multiple criminogenic needs that can be assessed incrementally. The primary goal of this solicitation is to support the rigorous examination of innovative reentry initiatives, particularly reentry services, programs, or plans that begin in institutional settings and continue in the community after release. NIJ will give preference in award decisions to proposals for evaluations of an innovative reentry initiative, addressing the areas of interest previously cited, across multiple sites, using randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
