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.
