Deadline: 25 March 2020
The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), component of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), is seeking applications for its Research and Evaluation (R&E) Initiative with an aim to research and evaluate approaches to combating domestic/dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
By generating more knowledge about strategies for serving victims and holding offenders accountable, communities that benefit from Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) funding will be better equipped to align their work with practices that are known to be effective, and they will be more capable of generating empirical knowledge on the efficacy of new and promising ways of doing things. R&E is designed to support researcher-practitioner partnerships and a broad range of methods, including qualitative, mixed-method, and quasi-experimental designs.

OVW is interested in funding research and evaluation to contribute to knowledge in the six areas of study:
- Justice: Ways the justice system can effectively pursue and achieve justice in cases involving VAWA crimes.
- Victims’ needs: How victimization and its aftermath affect people’s lives, and what victims need 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 are able to 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 pursing 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.
