2.1 Application Process

Program Announcements

For programmatic and technical requirements relating to block and formula award applications, contact the DOJ grant-making component to request program guidelines.

DOJ grant-making components announce competitive discretionary and formula/block program funding opportunities via Grants.gov. Applications for competitive discretionary programs are submitted through Grants.gov; however, the COPS Office has an additional step where their applications are submitted directly in the COPS Office Online Application System. Applications for OJP and OVW non-competitive discretionary and formula/block opportunities are directly submitted to the Grants Management System (GMS). A collection of available assistance programs can be found in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance published by the U.S. General Services Administration. To view each grant-making component’s available programs, visit the websites below:
