The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) seeks applications for funding to conduct the NIJ Multisite Impact and Cost-Efficiency Evaluation of Veterans Treatment Courts. The grantee will lead a $3 million cross-site evaluation involving court and research partners in up to 6 veterans treatment courts (VTCs) across the U.S. Incorporating experimental design and other research methods, the process, impact, and cost study will examine: program impact on relapse, recidivism, and other outcomes; for whom are programs effective; which program elements are effective; and whether programs are cost-efficient. Topics of interest include veterans with violent offense histories, mental health and comorbidity, leveraging technology, peer mentoring, and equitable service access. In collaboration with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the 5-year cooperative agreement will begin in July 2022 with a planning phase to confirm the research protocol including VTC site selection.
