This is the second of two webinars that will prepare applicants for Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) funding opportunities. Prior to the release of a solicitation, there are a number of steps that applicants can take. In this webinar, attendees will learn what registrations are necessary to apply, how to navigate Grants.gov and JustGrants, and what resources are available for applicants, such as the Office of Justice Programs’ Funding Resource Center. A Q&A session will follow at the end of the presentation.
