Annotation: Since a number of agencies and offices within the U.S. Justice Department have the authority to award Federal financial assistance to support law enforcement and public safety activities in State, local, and tribal jurisdictions, this study examined whether and to what extent these funding agencies overlap in areas of subject matter, activity, targeted audience, and eligible recipients.
Abstract: Using a method that compared unique descriptors of each program office solicitation against all other program office solicitations, the study found that less than one-half percent of all comparisons had a high degree of matches in multiple key areas. In addition, there were no solicitation comparisons that matched at a high degree of overall overlap in the key areas of subject matter, activity, targeted audience, and eligible recipients. These results indicate that among the hundreds of grant programs administered by the Department of Justice each year, the extent of overlap is relatively low, and the potential for duplication at the grant level is similarly low. In a further effort to assess the potential for duplication at the grant level, the Department of Justice will conduct a Phase II of the study, which will examine the extent, if any, of unnecessary duplication at the grant-award level. 12 tables, 5 figures, and appended supplementary data
