Deadlines and process...


Throughout the fiscal year, NIJ releases multiple announcements for research and technology development funding. Program deadlines will be included in the announcements of Requests for Proposals in the Federal Register, on NIJ's web site at www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij under Funding Opportunities, and on the NCJRS bulletin board and in electronic and hard copy publications.

Note: When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received. When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time

Approximately 90 days from application deadline.

Preapplication Coordination

Potential applicants are encouraged to request the program announcement for additional information about eligibility requirements, the research priorities of the Institute, and application and selection procedures. The standard application form as furnished by the Federal agency, in accordance with 28 CFR, Part 66 (Common Rule), must be used for this program. Applicants must contact their State Point of Contact (SPOC) to determine if the program has been selected for review by the State. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the office or official designated as the single point of contact in his or her State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review. The date that the application was sent to the SPOC or the reason such submission is not required must be included in the application. A copy of the application must also be submitted to the State office that administers the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Formula Grant Program.

Note: This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.


Hearing by the NIJ Director.

Note: In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).



Note: In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
