The Bureau of Justice Assistance will announce all 2011 grant recipients no later than Oct. 1. Awards will be posted on the BJA website.

While the 2011 Assistance to Firefighters Grant still have not been announced, you can prepare by making sure that your agency has registered for a DUNS number and a CCR number. When writing, be sure to clearly explain what the grant funds will be used for, why they are needed, and who will benefit.

Finally, Spillman’s Grant Assistance Program also tracks grants from private foundations. The National Rifle Association is currently offering grants for criminal justice projects. Agencies do not have to be members of the NRA to apply, but do need an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Deadlines differ by state.
