Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) FY 2014 Program: Local Solicitation

Established to streamline justice funding and grant administration, the JAG program allows states, tribes and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their local needs and conditions.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) calculates, for each state and territory, a minimum base allocation which, based on the statutory JAG formula, can be enhanced by (1) the state’s share of the national population and (2) the state’s share of the country’s Part 1 violent crime statistics. Once the state funding is calculated, 60 percent of the allocation is awarded to the state and 40 percent to eligible units of local government.
