How can I receive funding for a proposal that does not fit into any current funding solicitations available from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ)?
Most discretionary funding is awarded in response to solicitations issued by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). While you may submit unsolicited proposals, you are discouraged from doing so unless you have discussed the concept with NIJ staff and have been asked to submit a proposal that does not fit into a specific solicitation. Contact information for NIJ staff is available on the Phone Directory section of the NIJ site.

Unsolicited proposals may receive either an external peer review or an internal review. If the proposal fits into an already established solicitation category, it will be returned with a recommendation to resubmit it under that solicitation.
