Collaborative Grants $10M to Gun Violence Research
Last year, we formed the collaborative with a clear mission—provide the public and policymakers with basic information on the causes of gun violence and how it can be prevented. We believe this research will broaden agreement on the facts associated with gun policy, and support the development of fair and effective policies.
Today, we’re announcing our first $10M investment to advance gun policy research.
Our Research Advisory Committee has carefully selected 17 rigorous research projects, including two randomized controlled trials, and four dissertation projects. The funded projects represent a diversity of ideas and perspectives, including research investigators with backgrounds in economics, sociology, criminal justice, psychology, epidemiology and computer science.
In addition to providing much-needed evidence on gun policies, the projects will help strengthen the research field by building, expanding, and improving data sets to explore questions related to firearms.
Together, these studies will help inform policymakers, police departments, school officials and families in their decisions about gun safety and use.
