Justice DeptThe Grant Progress Assessment program was created to ensure that grantees used federal grant funds to achieve the goals and objectives set forth by Congress. It became an important tool for NIJ program managers for another reason — the assessments helped them educate grantees on grant requirements and special conditions, which in turn helped grantees better administer their grants. In the absence of an active GPA program, grantees can use this page as a reference for lessons learned from the program, and to learn about the program’s accomplishments, purpose and history.
