Grants to USA states, tribal governments, territories, and counties to develop and maintain public safety registries. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for a range of strategies and projects that assist jurisdictions with developing and enhancing programs designed to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) requirements.
SORNA was enacted to provide a comprehensive set of minimum standards for sex offender registration and notification in the United States. This program furthers the Department’s mission by assisting states, the District of Columbia, territories and certain federally recognized Indian tribes with implementation and ongoing maintenance of requirements under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, specifically Subtitle A of Title I of SORNA.
In FY 2020, OJP is supporting the priority areas identified below. Applications proposing activities in the following areas will be given priority consideration:
For all purpose areas, the SMART Office will consider making prioritized funding awards to the following: 1) jurisdictions that have not previously received funding under this program; 2) state and territorial applicants (or their political subdivisions or units of local government) that have already implemented SORNA; 3) tribal applicants that have implemented SORNA, submitted a SORNA substantial implementation package to the SMART Office for review or submitted a request for additional time to implement SORNA; or 4) tribal applicants that have not implemented SORNA, but whose SORNA registration activities have not been delegated to the state, if the funds are being used to move closer to substantial implementation.
