Department of Justice: Program Plan Tool

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched Program Plan - a new, searchable online resource that provides communities with several tools, including a list of current funding opportunities and new initiatives within OJP.

OJP is dedicated to building the nation's capacity to prevent and control crime by improving the criminal and juvenile justice systems, increasing knowledge about crime and related issues, and assisting crime victims. Given the complex of crime-related issues, OJP provides a number of tools, resources and technical assistance opportunities to communities throughout the nation. The Program Plan is divided into 10 thematically organized sections that capture the latest and most complete information about competitive and noncompetitive grants, training and technical assistance, research and other resources. These sections include:
  • Initiatives to Address a Wide Range of Criminal and Juvenile Justice Issues
  • Breaking the Cycles of Mental Illness, Substance Abuse, and Crime
  • Preventing and Intervening in Juvenile Offending and Victimization
  • Managing Offenders To Reduce Recidivism and Promote Successful Reentry
  • Effective Interventions To Address Violence, Victimization, and Victims' Rights
  • Enhancing Law Enforcement Initiatives
  • Supporting Innovation in Adjudication
  • Advancing Technology To Prevent and Solve Crime
  • Innovations in Justice Information Sharing
  • Resources to Address Justice Issues in Tribal Communities
The Program Plan also includes instructions on how to apply for Formula Grants and assistance, a Glossary of acronyms and definitions, answers to Frequently Asked Questions, and an alphabetical Index of the programs found in the Plan.
