Equal Justice Works is pleased to announce new resources to assist those administering JRJ funds in their state. In consultation with BJA, Equal Justice Works developed sample guidelines, a sample application for designated state agencies to customize and use, a description of the grant application process, and instructions for using the sample guidelines. Visit the Equal Justice Works JRJ information page to learn more.

Formula
The Bureau of Justice Statistics will calculate a minimum base allocation for each state and the District of Columbia, which is then enhanced by an amount proportional to the state's share of the national population. When available, BJA will post the JRJ Program State Allocation Chart on this page.

JRJ Governor-Designated State Agencies
Governor-designated state agencies (or in the case of Washington, D.C., a Mayor-designated agency) will administer the JRJ Program in each state. BJA will promptly post governor-designations as they are received. If a state and corresponding agency have not been included in the list of Governor-Designated State Agencies, BJA has not yet received a designation for that state. We encourage prosecutors and public defenders with specific questions about the JRJ Loan Repayment application process to contact the Governor-designated (or Mayor-designated) agency in the state within which they work.
