OJJDP FY 16 Practitioner-Researcher Partnership in Cognitive Behavioral Mentoring Program: The Practitioner-Researcher Partnership in Cognitive Behavioral Mentoring Program will support the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovative mentoring approaches for youth at high risk for delinquency/juvenile and criminal justice involvement or victimization and trauma. These mentoring approaches must incorporate practices that are informed by research on cognitive behavioral interventions and techniques. The program will fund a partnership between a practitioner/service provider and an evaluator/researcher.

Practitioner/service provider applicants should develop and implement cognitive behavioral-informed practices within existing mentoring programs. These new or enhanced approaches should be piloted, manualized, and implemented with a diverse target population (defined as populations that differ demographically and/or in implementation setting). Researcher applicants should design a rigorous evaluation that examines the program design, implementation fidelity and process, and program impact. OJJDP expects the practitioner and researcher to work closely throughout the application and program development, implementation, and evaluation. OJJDP expects to make separate awards to support program development and service delivery (Category 1) and evaluation activities (Category 2).

Authorizing Legislation: This program is authorized pursuant to the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2016 Pub. L. No. 114-113, 129 Stat. 2242, 2309.

Recipient organizations must agree to forgo any profit or management fee. Foreign governments, foreign organizations, and foreign institutions of higher education are not eligible to apply.

Applicants may apply under one of the following two categories:

• Category 1: Program Development and Implementation.

• Category 2: Evaluation.

To be considered eligible under this program, all applicants must document with a signed memorandum of understanding or letter of support that they have partnered with an organization that will submit an application under the alternate category. Category 1 practitioner applicants must document that the proposed implementation sites are administering an existing mentoring program and identify their corresponding evaluator/research partner applying under Category 2, and Category 2 evaluator/research applicants must identify their corresponding practitioner partner applying under Category 1.

OJJDP welcomes applications that involve two or more entities that will carry out the funded federal award activities under each category; however, one eligible entity under each category must be the applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipients. The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for conducting and leading the project. If successful, the applicant will monitor and manage any subrecipients or, as applicable, administer any procurement subcontracts that would receive federal program funds from the applicant under the award. OJJDP will consider only one application per lead applicant; however, subrecipients may be part of multiple proposals. (Applicants should also review and consider the “Duplicate Applications” note under How To Apply in Section D. Application and Submission Information.) Subrecipients may be part of multiple proposals.

OJJDP may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and the availability of appropriations.
