JAG Strategic Plan

CLOSED: May 28, 2021

Overview
The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant – Countywide (JAGC) program focuses on improving the criminal justice system by funding initiatives within local and state agencies. JAGC funds may be used to implement programs in one of the following program areas: (1) law enforcement; (2) prosecution, courts, and indigent defense; (3) prevention and education; (4) corrections, community corrections, and reentry; (5) drug treatment and enforcement; (6) planning evaluation and technology improvements; (7) crime victim and witnesses; and (8) mental health.

Eligibility
The JAGC program is open to units of local government with an allocation determined by the state’s formula-based funding matrix. Prospective subrecipients must assure the entities identified in the grant application are approved by the county via the 51% process, and all projects submitted in the application correspond to those approved through the local planning process.

Project Period
Subawards will be approved for a 6 to 18 month project period between October 1, 2020 and September 30, 2022.

JAG Strategic Plan
To comply with the new statewide strategic planning requirements outlined in Section 502 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act, the Office of Criminal Justice Grants developed the State of Florida Byrne JAG Strategic Plan. The strategic plan outlines key priorities for Florida's JAG funding based on results from the survey of local agency partners and state agency long range program plans. Subrecipients are strongly encouraged to fund projects addressing at least one of the identified priorities.
