The webinar will provide an overview of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) FY16 Encouraging Innovation: Field-Initiated Programs solicitation. Through this solicitation, BJA seeks to prevent and reduce crime and enhance the criminal justice system through collaboration with the field to identify, define, and respond to emerging or chronic crime problems and systemic issues. BJA is looking for proposed strategies to address these issues, including trying new approaches, addressing gaps in responses, building or translating research knowledge, or building capacity. Applications under this program should not duplicate other BJA-funded solicitations and should have either a national focus or the potential to broadly benefit the field of criminal justice. Applications are due on March 29, 2016. To view the solicitation, please click here.
