Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories local, state, and tribal agencies for activities that enhance public safety. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to support victims, strengthen the criminal justice system, and help reduce violence. Eligible uses of funds include providing support for additional equipment, personnel, training, supplies, technical assistance, contractual support, and information systems. This program furthers the Department’s mission by assisting state, local, and tribal law enforcement efforts to prevent or reduce crime and violence.

BJA recognizes that many state and local criminal justice systems currently face challenging fiscal environments and that an important, cost-effective way to relieve those pressures is to share or leverage resources through cooperation among federal, state, and local law enforcement. BJA intends to focus much of its work on addressing violent crime, enforcing firearms laws, officer safety and wellness, safe policing for safe communities, and fentanyl detection.  

Criminal justice programs may include any one or more of the following:

  • Law enforcement programs
  • Prosecution and court programs
  • Prevention and education programs
  • Corrections and community corrections programs
  • Drug treatment and enforcement programs
  • Planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs
  • Crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation)
  • Mental health programs and related law enforcement and corrections programs 

BJA Areas of Emphasis

BJA recognizes that many state and local criminal justice systems currently face challenging fiscal environments and that an important, cost-effective way to relieve those pressures is to share or leverage resources through cooperation among federal, state, and local law enforcement. BJA intends to focus much of its work on addressing violent crime, enforcing firearms laws, officer safety and wellness, safe policing for safe communities, and fentanyl detection. BJA encourages each recipient of a FY 2020 JAG award to join federal law enforcement agencies across the board in addressing these challenges.

Eligibility:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Only units of local government may apply under this solicitation.

By law, for purposes of the JAG Program, the term “unit of local government” includes a town, township, village, parish, city, county, borough, or other general purpose political subdivision of a state; or, it may be a federally recognized Indian tribal government that performs law enforcement functions (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior). A unit of local government also may be any law enforcement district or judicial enforcement district established under applicable state law with authority to independently establish a budget and impose taxes; for example, in Louisiana, a unit of local government means a district attorney or parish sheriff.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.
