Office of Justice Programs To Provide Grant Training To Tribal and Rural Communities

The Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs is sponsoring 10 outreach sessions in January and February to educate rural and tribal organizations and agencies about how to apply for OJP funding to address public safety and victims service needs in tribal and rural communities. OJP is sending representatives from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and the Office for Victims of Crime to several states to provide assistance and answer any questions rural and tribal organizations and agencies may have. The key goals are to: Provide overview of BJA, COPS, OJJDP, OVC, and OVW grants and application process; Highlight application requirements of grants; Identify tools and resources for applicants that will help with the application process; Offer applicants the opportunity to ask questions; Participants may attend in person. Some sessions are available remotely via Web/Skype. Click here for full details.
