Current Funding Opportunities

NEW for FY 2019

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) has created an FY 2019 OJP Grant Application Resource Guide. The provisions of the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide apply to only those applications submitted in response to OJP solicitations that expressly incorporate the Guide by reference. The OJP Grant Application Resource Guide provides guidance to assist OJP grant applicants in preparing and submitting applications for OJP funding, and information that may help potential applicants making the decision whether to apply for funding. If a solicitation expressly modifies a provision of the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide, the applicant is to follow the guidelines in the solicitation as to any such expressly-modified provision.

The table below lists all the open OJP funding opportunities, with links to the full text of the solicitation and to the appropriate grants system to apply. We encourage you to check out the Apply section of the site for information and training on writing and submitting an application. If you are looking for funding opportunities released in previous years or that closed during the current fiscal year, go to the Past Funding Opportunities page.

  • Open Solicitations
    Solicitations are OJP's competitive and formula/block grant funding opportunity announcements.
  • Open Challenges
    Challenges are technical, scientific, ideation, and creative competitions where the U.S. government seeks innovative solutions from the public, bringing the best ideas and talent together to solve mission-centric problems.
