Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications for funding to establish a Department of Justice (DOJ) Jails and Justice Support Center to assist jails in creating and sustaining safe, humane, and effective environments for people who are detained and incarcerated in them and for people who work in and visit them.
The Center, which will be collaboratively administered by BJA and the National Institute of Corrections, will provide the nation’s jails with information, resources, training, and technical assistance. This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by improving compliance among the nation’s jails with all constitutional and federal statutory requirements and other relevant U.S. law, regulations, standards, best practices, and guidelines.
