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 West Virginia Division of Criminal Justice Services will use the FY 2010 State JAG award to support priority areas such as domestic violence, sexual offenses, violent crime, substance abuse, and juvenile issues. The state's goal is to support subgranted projects that seek to address each of the identified priority areas established by the West Virginia Justice Assistance Grant Program Funding Committee as well as support the planning and administration of the formula grant program.
