Excerpt from RFP: "NIJ's Bridging Research and Practice (BRP) program provides funding to former NIJ grantees to share their findings with practitioner audiences.Sometimes research produces results that affect an unanticipated audience, and as researchers engage in dissemination activities, they may become aware of new venues for dissemination to reach targeted audiences. NIJ offers financial support through BRP to former grantees for unanticipated dissemination activities to practitioners that arise after an award has closed...NIJ will consider funding activities such as:Presenting at professional practitioner-focused conferences or webinars;Publishing in trade journals or other practitioner publications, including blogs;Recording videos or podcasts for practitioner audiences;Engaging in any other reasonable means to reach practitioner audiences, such as writing a series of posts for electronic dissemination via blogs or webpages"

Public Scholar Program 
Deadline: March 3, 2015 

Excerpt from RFP: "The Public Scholar program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. Although humanities scholarship can be specialized, the humanities also strive to engage broad audiences in exploring subjects of general interest. They seek to deepen our understanding of the human condition as well as current conditions and contemporary problems... Making use of primary and/or secondary sources, they should open up important and appealing subjects for wider audiences. The challenge is to make sense of a significant topic in a way that will appeal to general readers. ...NEH especially welcomes applicants who are in the writing stages of their projects or who already have a commitment from a publisher. However, the Public Scholar program also supports projects in the early stages of development."
