For More Information

Formula grant funds are awarded to an agency in each state designated by the governor. The amount awarded to each state under each program is available in OJP At-a-Glance. For information on how this funding is allocated within the state, contact the state agency directly. For each state, OJP maintains a list of the designated agencies for each program and the state administrators who make funding decisions. These lists of state points of contact are available through OJP's Website at www.ojp.usdoj.gov.
