Grants From The Department of Justice


What are your initial thoughts upon hearing the words Department of Justice? Do you immediately link it to crimes, prison, lawyers, judges and courtrooms?

If you've answered yes, then I guess you'd be pleased to find out that the Department of Justice is not just all about those things. The department does much more than what it is obvious.

In 1870, the United States Government constituted the creation of the United States Department of Justice, which is also known as DOJ.

The DOJ was initially established to ensure the enforcement of the law and administration of justice, which is equivalent to the justice or interior ministries of other countries all over the world.

Ever since it's establishment, the Department of Justice has been running programs and activities that could potentially improve the law enforcement system in the United States.

The DOJ has outlined 11 grant making agencies that could provide financial and several other types of assistance to eligible individuals and organizations. Such agencies include:

1) Office of Justice Program - The agency with the Department of Justice that offers federal financial assistance to practitioners, scholars, experts, and state and local governments and agencies.

2) Office on Violence Against Women - The agency operating within the DOJ that is geared towards the administration of 19 grant programs in an effort to provide protection and services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. The primary goal of the agency is to enable these victims to pursue a safe and healthy live and hold the offenders accountable for their acts of violence.   (continued...)
