Summer is coming to a close, which means the Labor Day Holiday is coming as well. Before we get into holiday mode, though, these 5 federal grants are due September 1st through 5th, so get your applications in soon. Areas include criminal justice, occupational safety, journalism, defense, and animal care research.
Evidence Based Decision Making in State and Local Criminal Justice Systems: Implementation Strategy for Sustainability and Scaling Up
Agency: Department of Justice (DOJ), National Institute of Corrections
Close Date: September 1, 2018
Purpose: To establish and test articulated linkages (information tools and protocols) between the decisions of local criminal justice stakeholders and the application of human and organizational change principles (evidence-based practices) in achieving measurable reductions in pretrial misconduct and post-conviction risk of reoffending.
Agency: Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Close Date: September 2, 2018
Purpose: To develop and conduct training and education programs for small business employers and workers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of occupational safety and health hazards in their workplaces, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

Purpose: To support a one-week workshop in Brasilia for 25-30 journalism students with up to U$50,000 in FY2018 for a project period not to exceed one year. This workshop should provide hands-on training to journalism students on all stages of producing news, via broadcast and digital media.

Close Date: September 5, 2018
Purpose: To support research that conceptualizes FEW systems broadly and inclusively, incorporating social and behavioral processes (such as decision making and governance), physical processes (such as built infrastructure and new technologies for more efficient resource utilization), natural processes (such as biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles), biological processes (such as agroecosystem structure and productivity), and cyber-components (such as sensing, networking, computation and visualization for decision-making and assessment).
