"Application Mechanics: Submitting an Application" Webinar

To provide targeted assistance to applicants applying for Department of Justice (DOJ) funding opportunities, DOJ’s JustGrants team is offering multiple webinar sessions on the application submission process.

DOJ funding opportunities follow a two-part application process. Applicants must begin the application process within Grants.gov. After applying in Grants.gov, the application information and forms will be transferred to JustGrants and will automatically appear when you access your application in JustGrants.

The “Application Mechanics: Submitting an Application” webinar session will explain:

  • Steps to take prior to applying for funding
  • How to find open DOJ funding opportunities in Grants.gov
  • How to apply for funding using JustGrants
  • The JustGrants roles and their responsibilities and required actions
  • How to navigate and use JustGrants to submit your application
  • Where to find training materials, job aids, and other resources

Each session is approximately 90 minutes with the same content covered in each webinar and time set aside for questions and answers. Registration for each session is limited to allow for the JustGrants Team to respond to questions.

If you are unable to attend a live webinar event or if you’d like to revisit the material presented, a presentation slide deck from the March 4, 2021, session is posted for your reference. Additionally, a recording of the February 11, 2021, session is available for you to watch.
