OJP is requiring that all discretionary, competitive grant programs be administered through Grants.gov.
Application attachments submitted via Grants.gov must be in one of the following formats: Microsoft
Word (*.doc), PDF (*.pdf), or text (*.txt).

Step 1: Registering
Note: Registering with Grants.gov is a one-time process; however, if you are a first time registrant it
could take 3-5 business days to have your registration validated, confirmed, and receive your user
name and password. It is highly recommended you start the registration process as early as possible to
prevent delays in submitting your application package to our agency by the deadline specified. While
your registration is pending, you may continue with steps 2, 3, and 4 of these instructions. Registration
must be complete for you to be able to submit (step 5) and track (step 6) an application.
