Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $1,142,137)

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 program 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).

As the Idaho State Administering Agency (SAA), the Idaho State Police Planning, Grants, and Research (PGR) department will follow the same awarding and monitoring process as they have with prior awarded JAG funds. A state solicitation is released by PGR and made available to all state, local, tribal, faith-based, and non-profit organizations. After applications are reviewed by PGR and the Idaho Grant Review Council (Council), a funding meeting is held, where all eligible applications are discussed and final funding decisions are made by the Council. Idaho's 2014 JAG funds will be used to support all state and local components of the criminal justice system, from multi-jurisdictional drug and gang task forces to crime prevention, domestic violence programs, courts, corrections, treatment, fusion centers, and justice information sharing initiatives.
