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. JAG funds may be used to provide additional personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, training, technical assistance, and information systems for criminal justice purposes. 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.
