BJA Releases Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Grant Solicitation


The Bureau of Justice Assistance, within the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, is seeking applications for its Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) Program, which will assist eligible states, local governments, and tribes in preventing, preparing for, and responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

States, territories, the District of Columbia, tribal governments and others that are eligible for funding under the FY2019 State and Local Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program are eligible to apply for the CESF funding. (Note that only the State Administering Agency that applied for FY19 JAG funding for a state/territory may apply for the state allocation of CESF funding.)

Allowable projects and purchases include, but are not limited to, hiring, supplies (such as gloves, masks, sanitizer), training, travel expenses (particularly related to the distribution of resources to the most impacted areas), and addressing the medical needs of inmates in state, local, and tribal prisons, jails, and detention centers.

Eligible CESF allocations vary by state and territory and range from $1.5 million to $58.5 million.

Applications for the CESF Program are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time May 29, 2020.
