In January 2014, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation of Princeton, NJ announced that it was awarding a grant of nearly $3 million to the R&E Center to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the Cure Violence model of gun violence reduction. The R&E Center is working with the Center for Court Innovation in New York to launch new program sites in New York City and then study the key components of the Cure Violence model as well as outcomes measured at the group and community level, comparing neighborhoods with and without Cure Violence programs.
