The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications to plan, implement, and enhance drug court services, including service coordination, management of drug court participants, and recovery support services. This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by providing resources to state, local, and federally recognized tribal governments to support drug court programs and systems for nonviolent justice-involved individuals with substance use disorder, including stimulant and opioid use.
This solicitation incorporates the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide by reference. The OJP Grant Application Resource Guide provides guidance to applicants on how to prepare and submit applications for funding to OJP. If this solicitation expressly modifies any provision in the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide, the applicant is to follow the guidelines in this solicitation as to that provision.
City or township governments, County governments, Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized), Special district governments, State governments, Other.
In FY 2022, applications will be submitted to DOJ in a NEW two-step process.
Step 1: The applicant must submit by the Grants.gov deadline the required Application for Federal Assistance standard form (SF)-424 and a Disclosure of Lobbying Activities (SF-LLL) form when they register in Grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/register.html.
Beginning April 4, 2022, the Federal government will cease using the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number to uniquely identify entities. At that point, entities doing business with the Federal government will use a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) created in SAM.gov. If your entity is currently registered in SAM.gov, your UEI has already been assigned and is viewable in SAM.gov. This includes inactive registrations. If you are a new entity registering in SAM.gov, you will continue to register in SAM.gov using the DUNS number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) until April 4, 2022. Upon completing your registration in SAM.gov, you will be assigned a UEI.
IMPORTANT: Grants.gov will transition to UEI at 11:59 p.m. eastern time (ET) on March 31, 2022. To support this transition, DOJ will update all posted Grants.gov funding opportunity packages to reflect the use of UEI.
All entities applying for DOJ funding opportunities that have a Grants.gov close date after March 31, 2022, must take one of the following actions:
1. Complete and submit the SF-424 and SF-LLL no later than March 30, 2022, at 8:59 p.m. ET.
- If the SF-424 is not completed and submitted by this time, any information contained in the SF-424 will be lost during the transition.
- If this occurs, applicants will need to re-enter their data in the new SF-424 form upon returning to Grants.gov on April 1, 2022.
2. Wait until April 1, 2022, to begin and submit the Grants.gov application.
Step 2: The applicant must then submit the full application including attachments in JustGrants at JustGrants.usdoj.gov.
To be considered timely, the full application must be submitted in JustGrants by the JustGrants application deadline. OJP encourages applicants to review the “How to Apply" section in the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide and the JustGrants website for more information, resources, and training.
