The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The New Hampshire State Police, a division of the New Hampshire Department of Safety, will use this congressionally mandated award in the amount of $750,000 to implement their Operation Street Sweeper Program. The primary goal of the program is to reduce the number of serious crimes occurring within the State of New Hampshire and to hold persons accountable for their involvement in illicit activities. To accomplish this goal grant funds will be used to acquire equipment and training needed to address the illicit manufacturing, distribution, and sale of drugs.
