Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $376,988)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and 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, including 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 and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands will use FY 2010 JAG funds to continue to support and implement programs developed by local law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in an effort to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of those organizations in combating crime and its effect on the community. A high priority will be placed on projects involving the JAG purpose areas of law enforcement programs, prosecution and court programs, prevention and education programs, corrections and community corrections programs, planning, evaluation and technology improvement programs, and crime victim and witness programs. Funds will also be applied towards administrative costs incurred for the management and oversight of this award.
