Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications to support projects designated for funding in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (Public Law 117-328) to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, to prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and to assist victims of crime (other than compensation).
Note that this solicitation is only for projects to be administered by BJA. Separate solicitations will be open for projects to be administered by the Office of Justice Programs' Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, National Institute of Justice, and Office for Victims of Crime.
Eligible applicants are limited to those identified in the Congressional Joint Explanatory Statement (JES) for the projects designated for funding. A list of the projects designated for funding in FY23 can be found here: FY23 Appropriations. The legal name (or "doing business as" name) associated with the applicant’s unique entity identifier (UEI) as registered in the System of Award Management (SAM) must coincide with the recipient listed in the JES. All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.
