Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,440)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of the city of Grants Pass and Josephine County will use local JAG funds to support the Josephine County Juvenile Justice Center. Specific details of the program are undetermined at this time and the city will accept the attachment of a specific condition at the time of award that will prevent the drawdown of funds until the required documentation has been submitted.
