Frequently Asked Questions

What resources are available to support the success of my grant?

As the designated technical assistance provider for the SCA program, NRRC staff work with a network of partners dedicated to the success of your project, including:

1. The federal agency that awarded your grant. Each grantee has a dedicated grant program manager at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). Your grant manager—a BJA state policy advisor—is identified in your grant award documentation. Your BJA grant manager is available to help you navigate the grant management process, including award acceptance, budget approval, and grant management requirements, and can also help answer questions such as:

o How do I make changes to the scope of my project?
o How do I make changes to the budget submitted with our application?
o How do I access the Justice Department’s grant management system?

2. The federal training and technical support team that manages the Performance Measurement Tool system. You will soon hear from the BJA PMT Helpdesk who manages the training and technical aspects of BJA’s Performance Measurement Tool (PMT). As a BJA grantee, you will be required to provide performance data and other updates on your progress regularly throughout your grant. More information about the PMT, including sample performance measures for your grant program, is available at A representative from the BJA PMT Helpdesk, available at or 1-888-252-6867, can also answer questions such as:

o What kind of data will I be required to provide?
o How do I access the PMT system?
o Who do I contact if I’m having trouble entering my data?
