Current Funding Opportunities

NIJ is accepting applications for funding opportunities listed below in order of application deadline.

Because these solicitations are competitive, we cannot have individual conversations concerning the solicitation with prospective applicants. Any questions concerning the solicitation should be submitted to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) Response Center: toll-free at 1-800-851-3420; via TTY at 301-240-6310 (hearing impaired only); email grants@ncjrs.gov; fax to 301-240-5830; or web chat at https://webcontact.ncjrs.gov/ncjchat/chat.jsp.

NIJ currently has no open solicitations. Typically, most of NIJ's solicitations are released December through ​April (pending appropriations from Congress). See Expired Funding Opportunities for past solicitations or review lists of past awards.

In the coming weeks, we plan to release one more funding opportunity in fiscal year 2016 — the Policing Research: Crime Forecasting/Data Analytics Algorithm Challenge
