The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Hillsboro will use the JAG award in the amount of $10,550 to provide victim services and educational programs to domestic violence victims. The city will use the JAG funds to purchase digital video and audio equipment and a laptop computer for use by the domestic violence case worker, and pay for costs to send staff to diversity, cultural, and domestic violence trainings. The city will also use JAG funds to produce and distribute educational materials to domestic violence victims and the community, as well as provide hotel vouchers to shelter victims of abuse.
