*** Update 04/08/2022: AmpliFund Go-Live Schedule***

FDLE’s Office of Criminal Justice Grants is transitioning to a new electronic grant management system, AmpliFund. We will be activating awards in the new system on the phased roll-out schedule below.
 
  • Monday, April 11, 2022:  All coronavirus (CESF and CERF) program awards will be activated. 
  • Monday, April 18, 2022: JAGD and other program (PSN, PREA, RSAT) awards will be activated.
  • Monday, April 25, 2022: JAGC program awards will be activated.


When OCJG activates an award, the notification will go to the Subgrantee Chief Financial Officer who was imported from SIMON as the AmpliFund account owner. This user will be responsible for adding additional users to their organization's AmpliFund profile. In order to prepare for the activation of your awards, please review the resource guides posted on our AmpliFund Resource page.

If you have questions or concerns about the account owner for your organization, please send an email to FDLEocjgFAQ@fdle.state.fl.us.
 

Overview

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Office of Criminal Justice Grants (OCJG) serves as the State Administering Agency (SAA) for various federal grant programs awarded through the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP). OCJG secures, distributes and manages federal grant funds for Florida’s criminal justice community. In addition to federal funds, OCJG also administers state grants for pass-through to local law enforcement, criminal justice agencies, and some non-profits, as appropriated by the Florida Legislature.
 

Structure

OCJG is divided between two units – the Subgrant Application & Management (SAM) Unit and the Compliance Performance and Reporting (CPR) Unit. The SAM Unit serves as the primary point-of-contact for recipients and is responsible for all federal award applications, grant adjustments, claims, financial closeouts, and program generated income (PGI) reporting. The CPR Unit is responsible for all recipient performance reviews, monitoring, audit reviews, award closeouts, etc.
 

Services

The Office of Criminal Justice Grants aids recipients in managing their awards. OCJG provides assistance during the application and project development phase to ensure the proposed project is allowable under the federal program. OCJG also serves recipients post-award by sending reminders of upcoming deadlines and assisting with the submission of required reports. Additionally, OCJG is responsible for ensuring recipients receive the training and technical assistance required to manage their projects.
