Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $1,477,869)

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 state of Hawaii, through the Department of the Attorney General, will use FY 2010 JAG funds to support projects that fall within the program purpose areas of law enforcement; prosecution and courts; corrections; drug treatment and enforcement; and planning, evaluation, and technology improvements. A strategic plan to determine priorities for each program area will be based in part on uniform crime reporting, multi-agency meetings, and local and national trainings and data. Sub-grant funds will be awarded through a multi-tiered review process, with an emphasis placed on the support of programs that integrate evidence-based practices into grant funded projects. Remaining funds will be applied towards administrative costs associated with the management and oversight of the award.
