Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA or territory nonprofit organization, for-profit organization, or IHE to implement public safety measures. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide targeted training and technical assistance to jurisdictions that have implemented, or are working to implement, SORNA ­— the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) support for the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) Training and Technical Assistance Program focuses on providing training and technical assistance to SORNA jurisdictions (states, tribes, territories and the District of Columbia) for the purpose of developing and sustaining programs to substantially implement SORNA, Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (34 U.S.C. § 20901 et seq.). This Act is designed to protect children and adults from sexual exploitation and violent crime, prevent child abuse and child pornography, promote internet safety and honor the memory of Adam Walsh and other crime victims. SORNA was enacted to provide a comprehensive set of minimum standards for sex offender registration and notification in the United States. SORNA aims to close potential gaps and loopholes that existed under prior law and generally strengthens the nationwide network of sex offender registration and notification programs.

The recipient of this award will provide targeted training and technical assistance to SORNA jurisdictions that have implemented, or are working to implement, SORNA. This training and technical assistance will include developing and maintaining sex offender registration and notification programs consistent with SORNA; upgrading or developing communication infrastructure(s) that inform communities and enhance community safety; using technology for information sharing; and integrating a sex offender registration and notification program with other criminal justice programs.

The SMART Office is seeking proposals from entities that demonstrate substantive knowledge and experience with SORNA and assisting states, tribes, territories or localities with implementing criminal justice and community safety programs, and that have demonstrated knowledge and expertise in the specific challenges and obstacles jurisdictions face implementing SORNA’s components. 

Expected training and technical assistance activities, as well as Goals, Objectives, and Deliverables can be found at https://www.smart.gov/pdfs/SMARTFY20SORNATTA.pdf#page=5.

Pre-Application Information:

Cost Sharing or Matching Requirement:
This solicitation does not require a match.

The SMART Office expects to make one award under this solicitation as a cooperative agreement, which provides for OJP to have substantial involvement in carrying out award activities.

To be considered timely, an application must be submitted by the application deadline using Grants.gov, and the applicant must have received a validation message from Grants.gov that indicates successful and timely submission. OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date, to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct promptly any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.

Prior to Registering in Grants.gov:
- Acquire a D-U-N-S Number
- Acquire or renew registration with SAM - If the applicant already has an Employer Identification Number (EIN), the SAM registration will take up to 2 weeks to become active. If the applicant does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow 2 to 5 weeks for obtaining an EIN from the Internal Revenue Service. If the entity does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow two to five weeks for obtaining the information from the Internal Revenue Service when requesting the EIN via phone, fax, mail or Internet. There is no fee associated with these processes. Additionally, these processes cannot be expedited. Once the SAM registration is active, the applicant will be able to complete the Grants.gov registration. The information transfer from SAM to Grants.gov can take as long as 48 hours. Therefore, OJP recommends that the applicant register or renew registration with SAM as early as possible.
