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 White Mountain Apache Tribe will use the funds to purchase an ATV for its Game and Fish Department to access and patrol regions on the Fort Apache Indian Reservations which their old, larger vehicles cannot traverse. In addition to the ATV, a trailer to transport it and costs for maintenance will be covered. NCA/NCF
