On February 17, 2009, the President signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (H.R. 1, Recovery Act), which included more than $4 billion for state and local law enforcement and other criminal and juvenile justice activities. The Office of Justice Programs (OJP), which provides federal leadership in developing the nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist victims, has been designated as the lead agency in administering $2.76 billion of this funding.
