Frequently Asked Questions

What responsibility does the Governor-designated JRJ administering agency have to cooperate with BJA in the administration of JRJ awards?

The Governor-designated JRJ administering agency, by accepting this award, agrees to abide by and comport with all requirements, applicable definitions, and conditions of the authorizing statute (42 U.S.C. 3797cc-21) and any related regulations or other guidance promulgated by the Department of Justice, including, but not limited to, applicable award special conditions and has a fiduciary responsibility to administer and account for the grant award funds.

Furthermore, the Governor-designated JRJ administering agency is under a continuing and ongoing obligation to self-report to BJA any material instances of noncompliance with these programmatic and statutory requirements. Each JRJ agency should complete the JRJ Verification form(s) and JRJ Student Loan Repayment Program Service Agreement on the schedule determined by BJA. Additionally, JRJ administering agencies are also required to report in the Justice Enterprise File Sharing (JEFS) system on beneficiaries in an “Exited/Repayment” status on a quarterly basis (January 30, April 30, July 30, and October 30). For more information, please refer to the JRJ Roles and Responsibilities document and JRJ Grant Student Loan Repayment Program Quick Reference for Reporting Recipients in Exited/Repayment Status on the JRJ Program page on the BJA website.
