Changes to the Application Submission Process
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.
