  Annotation: This report outlines the features of National Institute of Justice grant awards issued under the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (Crime Act) for the fiscal year 1996.
Abstract: To strengthen the role of the States and local jurisdictions as the primary governmental units responsible for crime control and the administration of justice, the Crime Act, among its other features, makes programs of assistance available to them. The Crime Act supports the development of community policing, interagency responses to domestic violence, drug courts, and the incarceration of violent offenders. These programs are distinctive in promoting innovation in the approach to controlling crime and preventing it. The National Institute of Justice sponsors studies that evaluate the effectiveness of these innovative programs and conducts related research. This report lists specific research projects sponsored by the National Institute of Justice in 1996. Each listing contains the grant or contract number, followed by the project title; name of the institution, agency, or corporation that received the award; name of the principal investigator or contractor; and the award amount. Each program is briefly described. The awards are presented under the general categories of community policing, law enforcement family support program, sentencing and corrections, and violence against women. Under community policing, the awards pertain to the changing roles of police, evaluation and problemsolving, locally initiated research partnerships, measuring the impact of police, police and the community, and police integrity. Topics for awards under sentencing and corrections encompass boot camps and residential substance abuse treatment.
