The requested settlement date is the business date on which you would like to receive the funds.

ASAP is the shared services payment system used by the Department of the Treasury that replaced the Grants Payment Request System (GPRS) for grants payments. Through this platform, recipients of DOJ grant awards and other forms of federal assistance are able to request and receive payments for grants managed through JustGrants.
To learn more about ASAP, see the ASAP Resources page.
Based on the recommendation of the Office of Management and Budget and the Chief Financial Officers Council, DOJ selected ASAP from two approved shared service grant payment systems.

GPRS is no longer accessible (as of September 23, 2020).
