This report presents an overview of congressional actions to fund the Department of Justice's (DOJ's) grant programs for FY2018, and it also provides information on FY2017 appropriations for DOJ's grant.
The amounts in this report reflect only new funding made available at the start of the fiscal year; therefore, the amounts do not include any rescissions of unobligated or deobligated balances that may be counted as offsets to newly enacted appropriations. Each year, Congress and the Administration provide funding for a variety of grant programs through the DOJ. These programs provide support to state, local, and tribal governments and nonprofit organizations for a variety of criminal justice-related purposes. These programs are funded through five accounts in the annual Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) appropriations act. Congress and the Administration funded the five grant accounts at $2.820 billion for FY2018. The amounts of each of the five accounts are as follows: 1) Violence Against Women Programs ($492.0 million); 2) Research, Evaluation, and Statistics ($90.0 million); 3) State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance and Local Law Enforcement Assistance ($1.680 billion); 4) Juvenile Justice Programs ($282.5 million); and 5) Community Oriented Policing Services ($275.5 million). 5 tables
