Collaborative Grants $7.5M to New Gun Policy Research
The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research has today announced a $7.5 million investment in new gun policy research.
The funded awards include research on officer-involved shootings, intimate partner gun violence, the risks and benefits of gun ownership and use, and other topics.
The Collaborative’s Research Advisory Committee selected nine research projects, five dissertation awards and one white paper award. With support from the Missouri Foundation for Health, four of the funded projects, totaling $1.95 million, address gun violence in Missouri, which has some of the nation’s highest rates of gun violence.
In addition to these 15 new research awards, the Collaborative has invited revised resubmissions of three projects, which could lead to a total award this cycle of $10.6 million. The results of these resubmissions will be announced in September.
Together, the studies will add to the growing body of research informing policymakers, police departments, families, and others in their decisions about gun use and safety.
