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.
On October 15, 2020, the Department of Justice grant making components―the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, the Office of Justice Programs, and the Office on Violence Against Women―launched a new grants management system (JustGrants) and payment management system (ASAP).

We understand that there are still some difficulties in accessing awarded funds through the JustGrants System. The JustGrants team is working to resolve known issues. See the User Support section of the JustGrants website for assistance in using the system. For further guidance, see the Program Office and Policy Office contacts on our site.
