John R. Justice (JRJ) Program


Available Funding

The Bureau of Justice Statistics will calculate a minimum base allocation for each state and the District of Columbia, which is then enhanced by an amount proportional to the state's share of the national population.

JRJ Governor-Designated State Agencies

Governor-designated state agencies (or in the case of Washington, D.C., a Mayor-designated agency) will administer the JRJ Program in each state. We encourage prosecutors and public defenders with specific questions about the JRJ Loan Repayment application process to contact the Governor-designated (or Mayor-designated) agency in the state within which they work.
