Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA states, tribal governments, territories, and counties to develop and maintain public safety registries. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for a range of strategies and projects that assist jurisdictions with developing and enhancing programs designed to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) requirements.

SORNA was enacted to provide a comprehensive set of minimum standards for sex offender registration and notification in the United States. This program furthers the Department’s mission by assisting states, the District of Columbia, territories and certain federally recognized Indian tribes with implementation and ongoing maintenance of requirements under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, specifically Subtitle A of Title I of SORNA.

In FY 2020, OJP is supporting the priority areas identified below. Applications proposing activities in the following areas will be given priority consideration:

  • Addressing the specific challenges that rural communities face.
  • Encouraging program investments in economically distressed communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones).

For all purpose areas, the SMART Office will consider making prioritized funding awards to the following: 1) jurisdictions that have not previously received funding under this program; 2) state and territorial applicants (or their political subdivisions or units of local government) that have already implemented SORNA; 3) tribal applicants that have implemented SORNA, submitted a SORNA substantial implementation package to the SMART Office for review or submitted a request for additional time to implement SORNA; or 4) tribal applicants that have not implemented SORNA, but whose SORNA registration activities have not been delegated to the state, if the funds are being used to move closer to substantial implementation.

To be considered timely, an application must be submitted by the application deadline using Grants.gov, and the applicant must have received a validation message from Grants.gov that indicates successful and timely submission. OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date, to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct promptly any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.

Cost Sharing or Matching Requirement:
This solicitation does not require a match.

Prior to Registering in Grants.gov:
- Acquire a D-U-N-S Number
- Acquire or renew registration with SAM - If the applicant already has an Employer Identification Number (EIN), the SAM registration will take up to 2 weeks to become active. If the applicant does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow 2 to 5 weeks for obtaining an EIN from the Internal Revenue Service. If the entity does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow two to five weeks for obtaining the information from the Internal Revenue Service when requesting the EIN via phone, fax, mail or Internet. There is no fee associated with these processes. Additionally, these processes cannot be expedited. Once the SAM registration is active, the applicant will be able to complete the Grants.gov registration. The information transfer from SAM to Grants.gov can take as long as 48 hours. Therefore, OJP recommends that the applicant register or renew registration with SAM as early as possible.
