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 city of Kaplan will use JAG funds to support the Kaplan Police Department. Project goals will be consistent with the stated purposes of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program. The grantee is required to submit a Program Narrative, Budget/Budget Narrative, and Review Narrative which demonstrates their compliancy with the JAG notification requirements. Specific use of funds will be determined at a later date.
