OJP Grants Financial Management and Grant Administration Training


Given COVID-19 circumstances, OJP has decided to continue with the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training instead of in-person training at 810 7th Street, until further notice.

During this time, we encourage you to access the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training at https://onlinegfmt.training.ojp.gov.


The Office of Justice Programs offers financial management training for our award recipients. Successful completion of one of the financial management trainings below will satisfy the training requirement for the points of contact and financial points of contact of an award.

DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training

This training is designed for individuals responsible for the financial administration of discretionary and/or formula grants awarded from federal grant-in-aid programs administered by various program offices at the Department of Justice, including the:

  • Office of Justice Programs
  • Office of Community Oriented Policing Services
  • Office on Violence Against Women

In its 24 modules, this training emphasizes the basics of federal grants management. The topics discussed are similar to the ones covered in the two-day Financial Management seminars hosted by the DOJ Office of the Chief Financial Officer each year. DOJ is offering this online version of the seminars to give you, a current grantee, the ability to complete federal grants management training from your desktop in place of traveling to the onsite trainings. The only prerequisite for taking this online training is that you must be a direct award recipient with a current grant and/or cooperative agreement as awarded by one of the DOJ grant-making agencies listed.
