Types of Funding
Much like other federal agencies, OJP offices and bureaus provide three types of funding to state, local, and private agencies and organizations: Formula (or Block), Discretionary, and Congressional Earmarks. Note that most OJP and other federal agency grant funds are dispersed through Formula grant programs and Congressional Earmarks.
Formula (or Block)
Awarded to state and local governments based on a predetermined formula, which may be based on a jurisdiction's crime rate, population, or other factors.
