John R. Justice Prosecutors and Defenders Incentive Act - (JRJ Grant Program) - #16.816

Grants are made directly by the Office of Justice Programs to the applicant State agency, based on results of a competitive review process conducted by the States. Grant funds will be used by States to make repayments, on behalf of eligible beneficiaries, of loan obligations to institutions holding eligible beneficiary loans. Direct payment of grant funds to beneficiaries is strictly prohibited. Grant funds may be applied as repayments of eligible loans only. See program solicitation for additional information regarding eligible beneficiaries, eligible loans, and contingent obligations of eligible beneficiaries. Priority consideration will be given to those eligible beneficiaries who have the least ability to repay their student loans, except that a fair allocation of repayment benefits among prosecutors and public defenders, and among employing entities nationwide, will be determined.




The designated agency must submit a completed Application for Federal Assistance (Standard Form 424), including a signed certification form stating that they will comply with statutory and administrative requirements. The applicant is also required to submit a description that includes the goals of their program, the implementation process, and a timetable for implementation. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-87.

Not Applicable.
