Annotation: This report presents fiscal year (FY) 2016 statistics and information on the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, which is the leading source of federal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions for a range of criminal justice programs, activities, and equipment.
Abstract: JAG is administered by the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). For JAG grantees, BJA provides the Performance Measurement Tool (PMT), which uses two data-collection methods to obtain data presented in this report. Recipients of awards in FY 2009-2014 report on one set of performance measures that focus on aggregate totals. Recipients of FY 2015 and future awards report on a revised set of performance measures that allow for more detailed data collection. All data in this report are presented by fiscal year of the award. It includes all grantees that are or have been active as of September 30, 2017; however, it focuses on FY 2016 grantees. Grantees that have not yet begun to expend JAG funds as of September 30, 2017 are not included in this report. The first two sections of the report provide information on funding allocations by total and by program area for FYs 2014-2016 grantees. The rest of the report provides a more detailed analysis of FY 2016 grantees. As of May 2018, FY 2016 JAG funds have been used to support 653 programs. Just over 800,000 personnel had at least part of their salary paid with JAG funds, and $28 million in funds helped grantees purchase just over 30,000 pieces of equipment. In addition, 610 training events and conferences have been attended, hosted, or developed with JAG funds. 10 tables and appended activity and funding use area definitions
