Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $18,199)

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).

Teton County and the town of Jackson will share JAG funds in the amount of $18,199. In a disparate situation such as this, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application. Funding will be used for activities and projects that will provide meaningful and measurable outcomes consistent with the goals of the program. For purposes of grant administration, the town of Jackson has been designated as the fiscal agent for the award. In this capacity, the town will be responsible for the management and oversight of the grant.
