U.S. Department of Justice; Office on Violence Against Women Research and Evaluation Initiative deadline June 29, 2023 and JustGrants deadline July 5, 2023

The purpose Research and Evaluation Initiative is to research and evaluate approaches to combat domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking (VAWA crimes) to generate more knowledge about strategies for serving victims and holding offenders accountable to better equip communities to align their work with practices that are known to be effective. These communities will also be more capable of generating empirical knowledge on the efficacy of new and promising ways to address VAWA crimes. This initiative is designed to support researcher-practitioner partnerships and a broad range of research and evaluation methods, including qualitative, mixed-method, quasi-experimental, and experimental designs. This initiative prioritizes the following topics:

  • Justice: Ways the justice system can effectively pursue and achieve justice in cases involving VAWA crimes, with justice broadly understood to include autonomy for victims, accountability for offenders, procedural fairness for all, and restorative justice.
  • Victims’ needs: How victimization and its aftermath affect people’s lives, and what victims need in order to cope, heal, and achieve safety and justice.
  • Cultures, disparities, and access: Ways that cultural differences and social inequalities matter in terms of where and to whom people go for help, and whether people can access justice and get services that are useful to them.
  • Impact: Short- and long-term impact of the justice system’s response, victim services, and other VAWA-funded interventions on victim safety and offender accountability.
  • Indicators of success: What success looks like and how to measure it—for victims pursuing safety and justice, for offenders being held accountable for their violence, and for people who work with victims and offenders.
  • Reducing recidivism: How to prevent violence from recurring.
