FY2022 School Resource Officer/School Security Officer Incentive Grant Program

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to announce the Fiscal Year 2022 School Resource Officer/School Security Officer Incentive Grant Program Funding Opportunity for new and continuing grants. Both funding opportunities are available in the new DCJS On-line Grants Management System (OGMS) and on our website. Grant applications must be submitted in OGMS no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 19, 2021.

The total amount requested in an application may not exceed $70,000 per SRO position or $35,000 for an SSO position, including the state funds requested and the required local cash or in-kind match. The only allowable state funded expenses for these grants are salary and benefits for full-time or part-time SRO or SSO positions to provide coverage during routine school hours.

Grant awards are dependent upon the availability of funding within the state budget bill.

All applicants must register in OGMS to view and apply for this funding opportunity. Once approved, you will receive an email with your username and a separate email with your temporary password. OGMS training resources are available on our OGMS Training & Resources webpage.
