Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA government agencies, tribes, law enforcement agencies including campus agencies within IHEs, and prosecutors for law enforcement activities related to intellectual property. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The Intellectual Property Enforcement Program (IPEP) is designed to improve the capacity of state, local, tribal, and territorial criminal justice systems to address intellectual property (IP) enforcement, including prosecution, prevention, and training and technical assistance. Funding awards will support law enforcement agencies which have an IP enforcement task force or plan to create one. These task forces will collaborate with relevant state, local, territorial, tribal, and federal agencies, including their local U.S. Attorney’s Office, to fulfill program goals.

This program is specifically designed to support the Department of Justice’s mission to investigate and prosecute intellectual property crimes. This will be accomplished by assisting state, local and tribal jurisdictions to build partnerships with federal agencies and prosecutors.  This program will also work to prevent and reduce intellectual property theft and related crimes through community and buyer awareness. IPEP includes an educational component to assist uninformed buyers in determining the authenticity of seemingly legitimate websites that instead deceive consumers into purchasing counterfeit goods.

To receive priority consideration under the rural priority, applicants must describe what makes the geographic service area rural (using U.S. Census or other appropriate government data; for assistance, applicants may wish to refer to https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/geography/guidance/geo-areas/urban-rural.html), how isolated the area is from needed services, and how they will address specific challenges in rural communities.

To receive priority consideration under the poverty priority, the applicant must provide information to demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent poverty counties. For purposes of this priority consideration, the term ‘‘high-poverty area’’ means any census tract with a poverty rate of at least 20 percent as measured by the 2013–2017 5-year data series available from the American Community Survey of the Census Bureau (applicants may search by census tract at https://www.census.gov/acs/www/data/data-tables-and-tools/narrative-profiles/2017/) and the term ‘‘persistent poverty counties’’ means any county that has had 20 percent or more of its population living in poverty over the past 30 years, as measured by the 1990 and 2000 decennial censuses and the most recent Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (applicants may search by county at https://www.census.gov/data/tables/time-series/dec/census-poverty.html and at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/saipe.html).

To receive priority consideration under the Qualified Opportunity Zones priority, applicants must include information that specifies how the project will enhance public safety in the specified QOZs. For resources on QOZs, and for a current list of designated QOZs, see the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s resource webpage, accessible at https://www.cdfifund.gov/pages/opportunity-zones.aspx.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadline: 11:59 p.m. eastern time on April 14, 2020

Applicants must obtain a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) Number and register online with the System for Award Management (SAM) and then must register in and submit applications through Grants.gov, a primary source to find federal funding opportunities and apply for funding. Find complete instructions on how to register and submit an application at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/support.html. An applicant that experiences technical difficulties during this process should call the Grants.gov Customer Support Hotline at 800-518-4726 or 606-545-5035, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except on federal holidays.
- For a DUNS Number, see https://www.dnb.com/
- For SAM registration, see https://sam.gov/SAM/

If the applicant already has an Employer Identification Number (EIN), the SAM registration will take up to 2 weeks to become active. If the applicant does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow 2 to 5 weeks for obtaining an EIN from the Internal Revenue Service. If the entity does not have an EIN, then the applicant should allow two to five weeks for obtaining the information from the Internal Revenue Service when requesting the EIN via phone, fax, mail or Internet. For more information about EIN, visit https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/taxpayer-identification-numbers-tin. There is no fee associated with these processes. Additionally, these processes cannot be expedited. Once the SAM registration is active, the applicant will be able to complete the Grants.gov registration. The information transfer from SAM to Grants.gov can take as long as 48 hours. Therefore, OJP recommends that the applicant register or renew registration with SAM as early as possible.

OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date, to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov, and to correct in a timely fashion any problems that may have caused a rejection notification.
