Justice Assistance Grant Program

Overview and Award Schedule

The purpose of the Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is to assist state agencies and units of local government in carrying out specific programs which offer a high probability of improving the functioning of the criminal justice system. Special emphasis is placed on projects that advance national and state drug control priorities. There are eight authorized program areas from the Bureau of Justice Assistance that define the nature and scope of programs and projects which may be funded. Sub-grantees must provide 10 percent program cost in the form of a cash match, with the other 90 percent of the amount covered by federal. The due date for FY2019 JAG applications submitted to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS), Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs (OHSJP) is March 15, 2019.
