The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), in coordination with OVC, is requesting applications for the FY 2019 Evaluation of Services for Victims of Crime solicitation.
NIJ is looking for formative evaluations and evaluability assessments of crime victim service programs.
NIJ is interested in evaluations of different types of victim services including, but not limited to—
- programs embedded in hospitals/trauma centers,
- umbrella/network organizations,
- one-stop victim services program, and/or
- programs embedded in criminal justice agencies.
NIJ recognizes that many victim services programs may not be ready to support rigorous outcome evaluations, and as such, a phased approach is needed.
Applicants should plan to conduct a formative evaluation, as well as an evaluability assessment to determine whether an outcome evaluation of the program or model is possible. Applicants should consider the diverse array of victim service programs.
Apply by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 6, 2019.
