How to apply...
Applicants must apply using GMS. Applications will follow guidelines outlined in the Competitive Training Grants Program Application Kit and will consist of: 1) a 250-word proposal abstract; 2) a program narrative; and 3) budget detail worksheets and budget narrative.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
All proposals are subject to an independent peer-review panel evaluation. Peer review panelists will consist of representatives from academia, industry, or Federal Government organizations, along with practitioners from Federal, State, and local criminal justice and public safety agencies. Applicants will be notified in writing if they have received funding.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
