Funding Webinars

Description

As Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) funding-related webinars are announced, they will be included on this page. Additionally, when available, recordings and/or presentation files for the webinars held will also be included below.

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.

For further guidance and resources, read the solicitation document carefully, access the DOJ Application Submission Checklist, and see the JustGrants Application Submission training page.
