Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG)

The Office of Criminal Justice Programs is pleased to announce an open solicitation for the Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) federal funding.  There are two priority areas available in the open solicitation:

A. Training/Professional Development: The purpose of this program is to give criminal justice personnel access to current training on specialized topics. There is a preference for those projects which include training courses that focus on evidence-based practices (www.crimesolutions.gov) which have been proven to be either efficient in their use of resources or effective in dealing with a specific problem area.

Preference will also be given to programs which will implement the following training programs to professionals in Tennessee on a statewide level:

Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), Law Enforcement Domestic Violence, Crisis Intervention Training (CIT), Victim Impact, Positive Action, Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT).

B. Law Enforcement Equipment: The continued advancement of information technology has presented a challenge to local and state law enforcement agencies who oftentimes struggle to afford to repurchase or upgrade equipment which has become outdated in only a few years. This struggle has resulted in the continued use of antiquated equipment by law enforcement.

Obsolete equipment can weaken officer safety and create a loss of efficiency.  Meanwhile, new innovations in technology can bring new cost-effective ways to solve traditional problems which is a clear benefit to both the Department and the communities that they serve. The Office of Criminal Justice Programs will provide funds for innovations which clearly represent a long-term cost savings to the Department or an improvement to officer safety.

Only those jurisdictions which were ineligible for direct funding under the FY 2012 JAG Award may apply.  In addition, agencies that have received OCJP JAG funds in the past three years are not eligible. Based upon this condition a list of jurisdictions which are ineligible for this grant may be viewed at the following link: Ineligible Jurisdictions.

A detailed solicitation addressing all the project and funding requirements; length of project and maximum funding available can be accessed via the link below.
