DOJ Program Plan
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has three grant-making components: the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS); the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) comprised of six bureaus and program offices; and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). These agencies are responsible for awarding federal financial assistance to support law enforcement and public safety activities in state, local, and tribal jurisdictions; to assist victims of crime; to provide training and technical assistance; to conduct research; and to implement programs that improve the criminal, civil, and juvenile justice systems. The Congressional appropriation that supports DOJ's programs and operations reflects the priorities of the President, the Attorney General, and Congress.
The DOJ Program Plan is a tool to help applicants and grantees find funding opportunities (solicitations) that address their criminal, juvenile, and civil justice needs. The DOJ Program Plan provides summary details of the funding opportunities each DOJ grant-making component is expecting to release or has released in the current fiscal year. The DOJ Program Plan addresses the following priorities:
- Administering justice for and strengthening services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
- Advancing the practice of community policing by the nation's state, local, territorial, and tribal law enforcement agencies.
- Implementing state of the art strategies for crime fighting, control, and prevention by law enforcement officers in states, cities, and neighborhoods.
- Expanding research, training and technical assistance, and programs that enhance the criminal and juvenile justice systems and support services.
For convenience and ease of access, the DOJ Program Plan can be filtered by the various grant-making components or offices (i.e., COPS, OJP bureaus and offices, and OVW), keywords, eligible applicants categories and subcategories, and expected release date.
