Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $1,677,937)

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 grantee will allocate funding from the FY16 JAG Program for criminal justice projects: engaging comprehensive criminal justice planning and bringing together system stakeholders, including law enforcement, courts, and prosecutors, public defenders, and corrections officials. These projects are essential to protect public safety and help deliver essential criminal justice services more reliably and cost-effectively. NCA/NCF
