06/28/21 11:59 PM ET - Grants.gov deadline; JustGrants deadline is 7/12/21 11:59 PM ET.
Grants to USA and territories state governments, IHEs, and nonprofit organizations for the development and implementation of programs to improve the justice system. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Five broad categories of improvements will be funded.
BJA’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Improving Justice System Performance provides funding to develop and implement innovative and research-based responses that address a range of criminal justice system problems. It employs the Justice Reinvestment approach to criminal justice, which recognizes that every justice agency has a role to play in preventing crime, ensuring a fair and efficient justice system, facilitating appropriate sentencing and treatment, and protecting community security.
The goal of the site-based awards in Categories 1-4 is for jurisdictions to use the five-step Justice Reinvestment Initiative process to address persistent or emerging crime and public safety problems, or to remove impediments to directly addressing them. The goal of Category 5’s training and technical assistance (TTA) is to work directly with current and future sites in accomplishing their project goals through ongoing support.
Award recipients will receive technical assistance from subject matter experts (solicited in Category 5) and are expected to follow the five-step Justice Reinvestment approach, as follows:
The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. In FY 2021, OJP will give priority consideration in award decisions to applications in Categories 1-4 that demonstrate ways in which their projects will advance one or more of these areas.
