The following funding news release from the Office of Justice has important information to ensure your application is submitted correctly in the Justice Grants System (JustGrants). Some of the resources included were the DOJ Application Submission Checklist, an eLearning Video and the Job Aid Reference Guide: Application Submission.
How to Ensure Your Application is Submitted
The grant application process with the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) involves two steps – completing the SF-424 and SF-LLL in Grants.gov and finalizing the full application in the Justice Grants System (JustGrants).
With Grants.gov, the workspace status will change from “In Progress” to “Submitted” once the application is submitted. Within 48 hours after submission, applicants should receive four notifications from Grants.gov, including a submission receipt and a validation receipt. Should an application be rejected and need corrections, applicants will be notified during this timeframe.
In JustGrants, applicants will be notified instantly if an application was successfully submitted once they complete the ‘Certify and Submit’ page. If there are validation errors that need to be addressed, details will be displayed onscreen and will describe which sections need to be reviewed.
