Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $447,115)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program, administered by the Office of Justice Programs' (OJP's) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), furthers the Department's mission by assisting state and local jurisdictions in improving the criminal justice system and assisting communities in preventing drug abuse and crime. In fiscal year 2007, the Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program will focus on funding local, regional, and national efforts within six major categories: 1) targeting violent crime; 2) preventing crime and drug abuse; 3) enhancing local law enforcement; 4) enhancing local courts; 5) enhancing local corrections and offender reentry; and 6) facilitating justice information sharing. All categories combat, address, or otherwise respond to precipitous or extraordinary increases in crime, or in a type or types of crime.

The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will use grant funds to develop and implement a National Motor Vehicle Titling Information System (NMVTIS) interface that will allow the State to instantly and reliably verify information on the paper title with the electronic data from the state that issued the title. NMVTIS is a tool for law enforcement to investigate vehicle thefts identified during the titling process.
