Request for Proposals to Evaluate the Trauma-Informed Abusive Partner Intervention Program

Posted in: Current Opportunities, News, Victims of Crime

Posted on March 11, 2019

The New York County District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is requesting proposals to evaluate the Trauma-Informed Abusive Partner Intervention Program (TI-APIP).

The TI-APIP initiative is situated within DANY’s broader efforts to combat intimate partner violence (IPV), to hold abusive partners accountable, and to reduce recidivism. The Urban Resource Institute is planning and implementing the TI-APIP, which will adopt a holistic and comprehensive approach to working with abusive partners by changing the justifications, attitudes, and beliefs perpetuating abuse.

Evaluation applicants should propose a research design that facilitates a process evaluation and outcome evaluation of the TI-APIP initiative. Specific goals of the evaluation include developing a better understanding of the TI-APIP implementation process, and whether the model is effective in reducing risk factors for criminal justice involvement (e.g., offender attitudes and behaviors such as motivation to change and aggression; offender and victim mental health; and other outcomes). Applicants should propose a design for a process and outcome evaluation.

This solicitation reflects DANY’s broad commitment to data-driven decision-making and to informing the research and practice field in New York and more widely.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office anticipates total funding for the evaluation to be up to $400,000 during the contract term.
