Office Of Justice Programs Releases API Of Grant Award Data

WASHINGTON, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In keeping with President Obama's Digital Government Strategy, the Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) recently published an application programming interface (API) that provides access to twenty years of OJP Grant Awards Data (1993 - 2013) in open, machine-readable formats, including current-year grant awards data that is updated daily.

"With OJP's second API release this year, we are re-affirming our commitment to implementing the President's Digital Strategy and ensuring that the American public has open access to information about how taxpayer dollars are being invested to keep American communities safe," said OJP's Assistant Attorney General Karol V. Mason. "As the Department's largest grant making agency, we have a duty and responsibility to be transparent. We are continuously striving to keep the public aware of what we are doing and how we can best serve the needs of our communities." 

OJP's Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Operations and Management, James H. Burch, II said, "This API, and the launch of OJP's Developer Page, are part of OJP's strategy for improving digital access and information sharing with the justice community and its partner organizations.  This data allows justice officials to leverage existing funding to implement and enhance innovative strategies and to avoid duplication."

The OJP Grant Awards Data API is a dynamic feed that allows developers and researchers to retrieve information efficiently, in the manner that best suits their needs. The data can automatically feed into mobile applications, websites, or other formats, allowing grant information to be readily accessible to the American people.         

This web service provides information on OJP Grant Data, such as the amount, awardee, location and other grant award details. The OJP Grant Award API page provides developers with end-points in XML, JSON, and CSV formats along with related codebooks, methodology, metadata and usage instructions.
