Police grants: What is an Application Submitter?

Police grant help: A key role for OJP grants

According to OJP, the Application Submitter role in JustGrants is one of six foundational roles in DoJ’s new grants management system to help entities complete the specific requirements and tasks associated with a funding application.

The individual in your organization who is assigned to be the Application Submitter is responsible for completing and submitting the application and budget documents. This includes Entity Assurances and Certifications.

An entity may have multiple Application Submitters within JustGrants. However, there can only be one Application Submitter assigned to each application at a time. Should an Application Submitter need to be replaced, the Entity Administrator can reassign roles within JustGrants.

To learn more, review the DOJ Application Submission Checklist, which covers all necessary steps the Application Submitter should take to complete the two-part application process in and JustGrants. You may also visit the Application Submission Training page on the JustGrants website.

Your agency can map your jurisdiction

Google Earth Pro - for public safety agencies

Compile crucial data on your area with Google Earth Pro… for free

Demographics. Distances. Area. Traffic.

Crucial data like this just scratches the surface of the information your jurisdiction needs. Not only can this data help you better plan scenarios and train your personnel, it can also bolster your grant applications and help move you toward the winner’s circle.

But… how do you get that data?

This sort of mapping and data analysis used to be really expensive. But not anymore.

Google Earth Pro is a free tool. Public safety agencies like yours can use it for crucial data, such as:

  • View demographics
  • Measure and calculate distance, area, and more
  • Review traffic count
  • Map data points
  • Use data in your grant applications or other documents

Get—and map—the crucial data your agency needs for incident planning and for writing grant applications:
