Discretionary grants

Discretionary Grants

Discretionary grants are awarded directly by Office of Justice Programs (OJP) to eligible recipients and are most often awarded on a competitive basis. Some discretionary grants may be awarded on a non-competitive basis, often based on congressional direction. The federal awarding agency may select the recipient from among all eligible recipients, may decide to make or not make an award based on the programmatic, technical, or scientific content of an application, and can decide the amount of funding to be provided to carry out project activities.
