To help potential applicants, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and BJA training and technical assistance providers host funding webinars to provide information about specific opportunities, capture guidance on how to apply, and answer questions. As webinars are announced, they will be included on this page. Additionally, when available, materials from the webinars held will also be included below.
Beginning in FY 2021, Department of Justice (DOJ) funding applications are now submitted in a 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.
A number of reference materials are available on the Justice Grants (JustGrants) website to help applicants as they apply for funding from BJA and others within the Department of Justice. See the Training: Application Submission webpage for access to eLearning videos, webinar materials, job aid reference guides, checklists, and more from JustGrants.
There are currently no upcoming funding webinars scheduled.
