Annotation: This report presents the amount of funding received by State and local jurisdictions through Federal grants for four reporting periods (January through December 2013) under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, which is the leading source of Federal justice funding to States and local governments.
Abstract: The report provides data on the amount of funding spent on each of seven JAG purpose areas and related activities. The seven areas are law enforcement; courts (prosecution, defense, and indigent defense); crime prevention and education; corrections and community corrections; drug treatment and enforcement; planning, evaluation, and technology improvement; and crime victim and witness protection. Overall, an average of $175 million was allocated under local JAG grants each quarter, and $221 million was allocated under State JAG grants. The program area of law enforcement accounted for almost 70 percent of local JAG allocations and just over half of State JAG allocations. Although funding allocation amounts changed over the four reporting periods, they were proportionally similar, mainly due to grantees changing their operational status. Over the period examined, there was a decline in the number of local grantees for all seven purpose areas in the October-December 2013 reporting period; there was a similar decline in the number of State grantees for the July-September 2013 reporting period. These declines are likely due to a large number of grants closing out during these reporting periods. 15 tables and 2 figures
