Legal Notices: Special circumstances as to particular award conditions (updated as of December 6, 2019)

Whenever (in certain special circumstances) the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") determines that it will not implement or enforce (in whole or in part) one or more requirements otherwise applicable to an Office of Justice Programs ("OJP") award, it is OJP's general practice to set out notice of each such determination through this "Legal Notices" webpage. Any legal notice pertaining to award requirements that is posted through this webpage is incorporated by reference into the award.

N.B.: Award requirements include not only award conditions, but also compliance with assurances and certifications that relate to conduct during the period of performance for the award.

As of the date above, the award-requirement exceptions in effect with respect to the particular funding opportunities ("solicitations") are as follows.
