New Funding Opportunity to Study the Impact of Gun Policy on Legal Gun Users
The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research is excited to partner with the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to announce a new research funding opportunity to study the impact of gun policy on law-abiding gun users.
Decisions about gun laws and programs in the United States must consider the interests of gun owners as well as the potential reductions in firearms violence or suicide the policies offer. Currently, however, we have few good measures of harms or benefits to legal gun owners.
To address the need for better information, we’re offering a special call for proposals to develop an objective method for estimating the impact of gun policy on the interests of gun owners.
The collaborative will issue up to $30,000 for one award to produce a white paper describing a rigorous method for evaluating the benefits or harms gun policies impose on gun owners and users. The concept paper may also lead to a solicitation funding full development of the proposed measurement approach.
Researchers across fields are encouraged to submit proposals. Proposals are due by Friday, April 10 at 5:00 PM PST.
