Office of Criminal Justice Services Grants


The Grants Administration section is responsible for administering state and federal criminal justice grants to both state agencies and local subrecipients. OCJS also administers and coordinates other competitive criminal justice grant programs awarded to Ohio by the federal government.

Grants administration staff provide technical assistance to subrecipients regarding the purpose areas of programs, allowable costs, and eligibility. Basic grant writing trainings also are offered several times throughout the year and are free of cost to participants.
