Collaborative Funds New Research into Firearm Suicide, Urban Gun Violence, Impacts on Gun Users
The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research today announced new grant awards for projects examining firearm suicide among women and racial and ethnic minorities, reducing gun violence among at-risk youth, and the impacts of gun policies on gun users.
This round of funding includes four new research awards, one extension to an existing project, three postdoctoral awards, and one dissertation award, totaling $950,000 in funding.
The new grants mark the Collaborative’s third major investment in research into gun violence prevention, bringing the total funding to $21 million across 44 research projects.
With the deadly toll from gun violence increasing in most United States cities, Collaborative director Andrew Morral emphasized the importance of the collaborative’s work to build a strong evidence base for what works to prevent gun violence.
“These projects address some of the key unanswered questions about gun violence and will help to inform policies and programs that save lives.”
