Changes to the Application Submission Process
In FY 2021, Department of Justice (DOJ) funding applications are submitted in a new two-step process, each with its own deadline. Applicants begin the application process by submitting an SF-424 and SF-LLL within Grants.gov. The application information and forms are then transferred to the Justice Grants System (JustGrants) and will automatically appear for the applicant in JustGrants. The applicant can then submit the full application, including attachments, in JustGrants.
Important Notice Regarding BJA's Grant Management System
