Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and tribes for innovative initiatives that prevent and reduce crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to the deadline.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications for funding to prevent and reduce crime and enhance the criminal justice system through innovative approaches that accelerate justice by identifying, defining, and responding to emerging or chronic crime problems and systemic issues using innovative approaches. BJA is looking for proposed strategies to address these issues, including trying new approaches, addressing gaps in responses, building or translating research knowledge, or building capacity. This program furthers DOJ’s mission by providing resources to support state, local, tribal, and territorial efforts to reimagine their approaches and strategies to enhance fairness and access to justice; prevent and reduce crime, including violent crime; prevent and respond to overdoses; support crime victims; improve relationships and build trust between communities and the justice system; increase access to justice and supportive services; and advance innovative improvements within the justice system.

Solicitation Categories:

  • Category 1: State, Local, Tribal, or Regional Research Partnerships
  • Category 2: National Strategies

Proposals must aim to address a gap in the current base of knowledge and/or test a new idea about responding to and preventing crime and be developed or implemented in a way that allows other communities or organizations to learn from and potentially replicate the approach. For a proposal to be considered “innovative,” it must:

  • Propose a strategy or response that has not been implemented previously, yet is supported by research, data, theory, or evidence.
  • Propose a new modification to an existing strategy or response that has not been implemented previously, yet is supported by research, data, theory, or evidence.
  • Propose a new approach to delivering existing evidence-based strategies or responses that has not been implemented previously and has the potential to reduce costs and increase efficiencies while maintaining effectiveness (including organizational developments and changes that may enhance the effectiveness or long-term sustainability of the existing strategy or response).
