Getting Research into Practice

A new NIJ program is giving funds to help researchers disseminate their work to practitioners.

NIJ’s new Bridging Research and Practice (BRP) program provides funding to former NIJ grantees to share their findings with practitioners. Research sometimes produces results that affect an unanticipated audience, and researchers may become aware of new venues for dissemination to reach specific audiences. Former grantees can now get additional funds to transmit findings directly to practitioner audiences.

Funding can be used for a variety of activities, including:
  • Publishing in trade journals, newsletters or other practitioner publications.
  • Presenting at professional, practitioner-focused conferences or webinars.
  • Recording videos or podcasts for practitioner audiences.
  • Engaging in any other reasonable means to reach practitioner audiences.
