Each year, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) of the Department of Justice, through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (BJAG) Program, allocates funding to states and to units of local government based on populations and crime statistics. Applicants are limited to units of local government specified on the BJAG Allocations List. The list includes Annapolis. Funds may be used for personnel, training, equipment, contractual support, and technologies to support criminal justice efforts.
Funding allocations are based on BJAG-developed formulas. Eligible agencies must submit an application and appendices per guidance issued by BJA. The applications are reviewed, with final selections based on eligibility, relevance, and merit.
