  Annotation: This guide, organized by topic, provides information on the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Justice Program's (OJP) programs and activities conducted in accordance with its mission to provide Federal leadership in developing the Nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, improve the criminal and juvenile justice systems, increase knowledge about crime and related issues, and assist crime victims.
  Abstract: OJP formula grant programs are briefly described. These programs are designed to improve law enforcement and the criminal justice system, prevent youth violence and improve the juvenile justice system, provide funding for State and local correctional facilities, prevent violence against women, and assist crime victims. Several OJP initiatives are using creative, comprehensive approaches to encourage various parts of communities to work together to solve common problems. With respect to this effort, this guide describes funding opportunities, training and technical assistance opportunities, and other resources. OJP works to prevent violence against women by helping improve the criminal justice response to the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Further, OJP is involved in identifying ways to reach out to youth before they become involved in violence, as well as addressing the underlying problems that lead many youth to commit crimes. OJP's efforts have also focused on improving the juvenile justice system. Other major sections of this guide focus on OJP's efforts to encourage innovation in corrections, break the cycle of drug use and crime, assist crime victims, support law enforcement and enhance public safety, promote justice research and evaluation, counter terrorism and ensure domestic preparedness, and enhance technology's use in addressing crime. In reviewing OJP's activities and programs in all of these aforementioned areas, this guide describes funding opportunities, training and technical assistance opportunities, and other resources.
