Grant Resources

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) grantmaking agencies have announced numerous federal funding opportunities for fiscal year (FY) 2024.  This overview is provided to increase awareness about DOJ grant opportunities and to make it easier for potential recipients to access needed information and successfully navigate the process of applying for a DOJ grant. 

While the U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO) cannot write your grant application or provide technical assistance in the grant application portals (e.g., JustGrants,, we can help make connections to the right people to answer your questions.  Additionally, we may be interested in collaborating on projects and actively participating on a project team, particularly those projects that correspond with a USAO priority area – such as violent crime, hate crimes, and reentry support – without the need to be budgeted into the project. 

Applying for federal grants is not a simple process. However, we are confident that the information and resources provided here will help agencies and organizations in the Western District of Tennessee to understand how best to position themselves to identify funding opportunities and apply for funding.

If you have questions or would like to discuss project collaboration, grant funded or otherwise, please email our Outreach/Reentry Coordinator, Cherri Green.
