Funding and Legislation

Development and expansion of justice information sharing programs is made possible by government and private funding sources. These pages list funding resources and government agencies that provide grants to further information sharing and technology integration initiatives.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), supports law enforcement, courts, corrections, treatment, victim services, technology, and prevention initiatives that strengthen the nation’s criminal justice system. One of the many types of support provided by BJA is funding support. Criminal justice entities in need of financial support should visit the Available Funding page for access to all open opportunities.

Legislation surrounding funding opportunities can provide helpful insight into operating a successful technology initiative. The Legislation section of the site provides information and references to make navigating funding legislation and tracking legislative updates easier.
