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.
