Financial Aid Programs No Longer Accepting New Applications

Overview

John R. Justice (JRJ) Program

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is currently not accepting any new applications for this program. Due to the large amount of applicants who applied during the original year of funding/implementation (many of which are still pending admittance into the program), and the significant funding reduction to this program over the years, Cal OES is unable to open the JRJ program for any new applicants.

All inquiries regarding the JRJ program can be sent to: jrj@caloes.ca.gov
