FY21 Justice Assistance Grant Workshop Registration

All agencies wishing to submit a new JAG application and/or a JAG continuation application to the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (OOG-CJD) must attend an NCTCOG Grant Application Workshop in order to be eligible to apply for FY21 CJD funds.

The purpose of the Criminal Justice Program-Justice Assistance Grant category is to solicit grant projects that promote public safety, reduce crime, and improve the criminal justice system.

Important: Read the Criminal Justice Program Funding Announcement below to determine if your agency is eligible to apply and that your proposed project fits within the eligibility criteria.

Criminal Justice Program  (JAG) Funding Announcement 


The attendance of an applicant agency at any one of the workshop sessions, regardless of funding category, will satisfy the mandatory attendance requirement as set forth in the Policies & Procedures.  Therefore, if your agency is applying in more than one funding category, attendance is only required at any one of the funding category-specific workshops. 

If your agency anticipates using a grant writer who is not an employee of your organization, an organization employee must also attend.  Furthermore, contract grant writers will not be allowed to sign in for multiple agencies they may be representing.  It is imperative that the applicant agency sends a staff person in order to be clear on the submission process and scoring criteria associated with this region.
