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 grantee will use the JAG award to support crime prevention initiatives by distributing funds among seven Community Programs: Victim Services Center; Incarcerated Fathers Program; Law Enforcement Fusion Center; DAWN (Developing Adults with Necessary Skills) Program; Pace Center for Girls Works Program; Community Prosecution Unit Program; and the Emergency Dispatch Center Program.
