OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats and builds trust between law enforcement
and the community.
The SMART Office assists states, the District of Columbia, territories and tribal jurisdictions with developing and/or enhancing programs designed to implement the requirements of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, and promotes innovation and best practices in protecting the public from sexual violence.
The SMART Office seeks applications for the Sexual Violence Prevention Initiative (SVPI).
SVPI will build upon previous work developed by the SMART Office by updating, collecting and summarizing research and practice on sexual violence prevention and sex offender management to highlight best practices and to inform OJP’s research and grant-making efforts in this area.
