Section 200.204(a) (Notices of funding opportunities, Summary of information in notices of funding opportunities) of 2CFR, Part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards states, “The Federal awarding agency must display the following information posted on the OMB-designated governmentwide website for funding and applying for Federal financial assistance…”
Grants.gov is currently the OMB-designated government-wide website for funding and applying for federal financial assistance. DOJ announces all federal discretionary competitive funding opportunities as well as non-competitive funding opportunities in Grants.gov.
Grants.gov is the first step of the application process where the applicant must complete the SF-424 and the SF-LLL before proceeding. Once submitted, application information will be automatically transmitted to JustGrants, where applicants will need to complete the remaining sections of their application. JustGrants was designed to leverage the authentication and registration information, which is initiated in SAM.gov and used to apply in Grants.gov, to authorize the electronic submission of an application in JustGrants.
Please note, there are two submission deadlines for DOJ funding opportunities. First, the Grants.gov submission deadline, which must be met before an applicant can submit the full application in JustGrants, followed by the JustGrants deadline. The deadlines for each DOJ funding opportunity can be found on the cover page of the solicitation for which the applicant is applying.
No. The SF-LLL is the Disclosure of Lobbying Activities, and is required for all DOJ applicants.
The SF-424 is a standard form required for submission of pre-applications, applications and related information. Grants.gov will highlight the specific fields that are required to complete in order to submit the SF-424 and SF-LLL.
In Section 8.F of the SF-424, please include the name and contact information of the individual who will complete the application materials in JustGrants. JustGrants will use this contact information to assign the Application Submitter role in JustGrants.
No. You must submit the SF-424 and SF-LLL in Grants.gov first.
Once you get into JustGrants, you can update most data fields associated with the SF-424 (e.g., requested funding amount, project title, type of applicant). The only data that cannot be edited directly in the application in JustGrants are the entity and program identifiers (e.g., UEI, Funding Opportunity Number).
If revisions are needed to be made to the SF-LLL, do not delete the version submitted in Grants.gov; upload a revised version to the “Additional Attachments” section of your JustGrants application.
No. Once these forms are successfully submitted in Grants.gov and integrated into JustGrants, there is no need to update those forms in Grants.gov. Most of the SF-424 information can be updated within the JustGrants application.
The individual identified in the (Name and contact information of person to be contacted on matters involving this application) in Section 8.F of the SF-424 will be designated as the Application Submitter in JustGrants. This information in the SF-424 cannot be changed; however, the Entity Administrator can reassign the Application Submitter role to another user in JustGrants.
JustGrants uses SAM as the primary source of agency information in applying for and managing DOJ grant funding.
In JustGrants, an applicant and/or award recipient organization is called an “entity,” and information in an entity’s SAM registration is automatically updated in JustGrants. Therefore, maintaining an updated registration in SAM.gov is critical to an entity’s ability to apply, receive funding, and register in both the Automated Standard Application for Payments (ASAP) and JustGrants systems.
