The grant program does not support projects that rely on reducing pollution by using recycling, clean-up, treatment, disposal or energy recovery activities.
Fellows will use data to improve operations, including funding practices, at the agency. The program facilitates collaboration between academic scholars and government researchers in survey methodology, statistics, economics and social sciences. Individuals who have a nationally recognized research portfolio and considerable expertise in their area of proposed research may apply for funding.
The program will enhance the quality and quantity of specialized services available to assist victims of human trafficking, including services for underserved victims of human trafficking such as American Indians and Alaska Natives or individuals who identify as straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning.
The program will support established mentoring organizations as they strengthen and expand their existing mentoring activities with local subawardees and other mentoring organizations. Mentoring activities include direct one-on-one, group, peer or a combination of these types of mentoring services for at-risk and underserved youth populations.
The grantees will provide mentoring services for those in the following underserved populations: youth with disabilities; youth in foster care; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning youth. OJJDP defines underserved youth as those who demonstrate need but have not participated in consistently high-quality mentoring services due to: location; shortage of qualified mentors; special physical or mental challenges; and being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning.
The program will sponsor studies and secondary analysis of existing data to provide objective, independent knowledge about the extent and impact of girls’ contact with the juvenile and adult justice systems. This includes arrests, referrals to court, diversion, charges filed, placement in secure juvenile detention facilities and adult jails and lockups, findings of delinquency, placement in secure juvenile correctional facilities, probation and transfers to the adult criminal justice system.
The program will enhance the quality and quantity of services available for victims of human trafficking. The primary objectives are to enhance interagency collaboration and coordinated community response to victims of human trafficking and to provide high-quality services that address the individualized needs of trafficking victims.
The program supports approaches within correctional facilities to prevent, detect and respond to incidences of sexual victimization. Projects addressing underserved populations are encouraged.
