Justice Assistance Grant Local Solicitation deadline extended to June 17, 2009

The Recovery Act Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Formula Program: Local Solicitation deadline has been extended. The new application deadline is 8:00 pm ET on June 17, 2009.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance, a component of the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), established the previous deadline of May 18 to encourage early submission of applications in an effort to provide economic stimulus as soon as possible. Because this is a non-competitive formula grant program, the extension of this deadline does not impact either eligibility or funding determinations.

For information about this solicitation or other OJP programs, please visit www.ojp.gov or call OJP’s Office of Communications at 202-307-0703.
