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).

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety Governor's Crime Commission will use this Fiscal Year 2015 JAG award to test innovative approaches to emerging problems and to replicate successful practices. North Carolina is working on a statewide strategy which will help guide the SAA in allocating Federal funds, and have developed a survey to enlist stakeholder input in their 2015-2019 JAG Strategic Plan. Activities to be funded through the state’s FY 2015 JAG Program include: equipment projects; overtime projects; gang prevention and intervention projects; statewide training; substance abuse and treatment programs; non-residential re-entry programs; prescription drug prevention programs; and state and local technology initiatives.
