Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $750,000)

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 state of New Hampshire proposes to use their Fiscal Year 2010 Congressionally Selected award to support the operation of the New Hampshire Attorney General's Drug Task Force. The Drug Task Force is the sole agency in New Hampshire comprised of state, county and local officers tasked with the investigation and interdiction of illicit narcotics on a statewide basis. The state of New Hampshire operates this single multijurisdictional task force on a statewide basis, in collaboration with a number of other partner organizations to include the DEA, HIDTA, U.S. Attorney's Office, State Police Narcotics Investigation Unit, and local police departments. The primary goal of this project is to enhance New Hampshire's efforts to reduce and interdict the demand for illegal drugs in New Hampshire.
