Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $923,827)

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 Montana Board of Crime Control will use the JAG funds to reduce the supply and demand of illegal drugs; to educate the community and public about the dangers of illegal drugs and related crime; for the detection, enforcement, tracking, record-keeping and data reporting of drug endangered children and gang-related laws and activities; and to address other evidence-based programs allowable under JAG purpose areas. Subawards will be made to the Montana Mutli-jurisdictional Drug Task Forces and other related projects to address these goals.
