Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories states and Tribes 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 projects that assist jurisdictions with developing and enhancing programs designed to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) requirements.

The AWA Implementation Grant Program assists jurisdictions with developing and enhancing programs designed to implement SORNA requirements. SORNA requires: 1) all states, the District of Columbia, the principal U.S. territories and participating federally recognized Indian tribes to maintain a sex offender registry; and 2) sex offenders to register and maintain a current registration in each jurisdiction where the individual lives, works or goes to school.

Under the Adam Walsh Act Implementation Grant Program, the SMART Office funds projects that assist jurisdictions in implementing the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. The program works to improve sex offender registry systems to support and maintain implementation of SORNA’s standards.

The goals of the Adam Walsh Act Implementation Grant Program are to —

  • Facilitate, enhance and maintain jurisdictional implementation of SORNA;
  • Provide training and technical assistance to jurisdictions implementing SORNA; and
  • Facilitate information sharing and access among states, tribes, territories and the District of Columbia.

Eligibility:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants are limited to jurisdictions that are defined by SORNA as states, the District of Columbia, the principal U.S. territories and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) that are eligible per 34 U.S.C. § 20929 to carry out the functions of SORNA and have elected to do so.

For the purposes of this solicitation, "state" means any state of the United States, the District of Columbia, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Tribal applicants must demonstrate eligibility status by indicating that the tribe has elected to carry out the requirements of SORNA (see 34 U.S.C. § 20911(10)), and has not had its registration duties under SORNA delegated since that election. Tribes that have elected to carry out the requirements of SORNA should submit a tribal resolution that documents the tribe's election to do so.

The SMART Office will prioritize funding to: 1) State and territorial applicants that have already implemented SORNA; 2) 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; 3) Tribal applicants that have not implemented SORNA, but whose SORNA registration activities have not been delegated to the state, if the requested funds will be used to assist the tribe with progressing toward substantial implementation; 4) State applicants who have not implemented SORNA, but whose application request is for activities that will be used to further their efforts to implement SORNA; and 4) Jurisdictions that have not previously received funding under this program.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

Pre-Application Information:

Submission Dates and Time:
Grants.gov Deadline May 11, 2022, 11:59 pm Eastern
Application JustGrants Deadline May 25, 2022, 5:00 pm Eastern

This solicitation does not require a match.

Submission Information:
Applications will be submitted to DOJ in two steps: Step 1: The applicant must register with Grants.gov and submit the required Application for Federal Assistance (SF-424) and a Disclosure of Lobbying Activities (SF-LLL) form in Grants.gov by the Grants.gov deadline.

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 an entity is currently registered in SAM.gov, a UEI has already been assigned and is viewable in SAM.gov. This includes inactive registrations. If the entity has not yet registered in SAM.gov, the entity will continue to register in SAM.gov using the DUNS number until April 4, 2022. Upon completing the entity’s registration in SAM.gov, it will be assigned a UEI. For additional information, see the Unique Entity Identifier Update and the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide.

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.
