CTAS:  Application Extension – Due Tuesday, March 12, 2019 [9 p.m. EST]

The FY19 application submission was originally set for February 26, 2019.  However, The Department of Justice has extended the FY19 CTAS application deadline to March 12, 2019. This extension provides applicants an additional two weeks to apply. Applications submitted after 9 p.m. EST on March 12, 2019, will not be considered for funding. The decision to extend the deadline was based on careful examination and consideration of a number of factors determined to have prohibited and/or delayed would-be applicants from completing and submitting high-quality application packages. Included among those factors is the partial federal government shutdown and a number of inclement weather days, both in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country.

Registration in GMS  |   Those applicants who have not registered in the Grants Management System (GMS) are strongly encouraged to do so within the next 48 hours. For technical assistance with submitting an application, the GMS Support Hotline is available at 888-549-9901, option 3, or via e-mail at The GMS Support Hotline is operational 24/7.
