Office of Criminal Justice Grants


OCJG uses a grant management system for the purposes of grant and subgrant administration. In April of 2022, OCJG transitioned from the SIMON grant management system to the AmpliFund grant management system. This allowed OCJG to improve its grant management processes and procedures, as well as satisfy Federal budget category requirements.

The AmpliFund grant management system can be accessed through the AmpliFund login portal. Information regarding system navigation and processes can be found in the trainings provided below. Additional information can be found through the AmpliFund Help and Support Desk.
