"Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, FY2016 Local Solicitation"


Each year, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) of the Department of Justice, through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) 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 cited on the JAG Allocations List found in the program description at JAG funds may be used for training, equipment, contractual support, and information systems in support of law enforcement.

Although the BJA program "allocates" funding based on formulas, eligible agencies must provide narrative and budget justifications in an application process involving merit reviews. The due date for submission of the application by the Annapolis Police Department is June 30, 2016.
