How to apply...
The application procedure and time lines will be contained in the program solicitation. Concept papers are initially received by peer panels, then reviewed within the agency for final selections. Community Gun Violence Prosecution Program applications are submitted via the Internet-based Office of Justice Programs (OJP) at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/BJA.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
BJA reviews applications for completeness, accuracy, and compliance with all program requirements. Upon approval by the Assistant Attorney General, OJP, award letters and award documents are sent to grantee. One copy of grant award must be signed by duly authorized representative and returned to BJA.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
