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 Clackamas County Juvenile Department will use their FY 2001 JAG funds for the enhancement of Cognitive Behavioral Skills Intervention Services at the Community Based Prevention Site for identified at-risk youth. Goals of the project include: 1. coordinated service delivery; 2. evidence-based interventions; 3. assessment; and 4. education or cognitive behavioral skills development of youth identified with two or more risk factors as identified by the Juvenile Crime Prevention Screening Tool. The primary goal is to reduce recidivism among those youth completing program services. Funds will be expended for a .5 FTE facilitator, equipment, and supplies.
