Annotation: This kit solicits applications for programs to implement the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Discretionary Grant Program as authorized under the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988.
Abstract: This grant program is designed to increase the range of effective programs, practices, and technologies available to enhance the capabilities of State and local criminal justice practitioners in their efforts to control drugs and crime. This is achieved through demonstration programs, evaluations of new practices and technologies, the transfer of program models, and the provision of technical assistance and training. The amount of funds available for fiscal year 1992 is $54,000,000. Competitive, noncompetitive, and continuation programs are described in separate sections of this kit. Competitive programs (52.3 percent) are open to a broad range of organizations. Awards will be made to organizations/agencies that offer the greatest potential for achievement of the objectives outlined in the program descriptions. The programs address gangs/violent offenders; victims; community policing/police effectiveness; intermediate sanctions/user accountability; intensive prosecution and expeditious adjudication; evaluations; and information systems, statistics, and technology. Noncompetitive programs (22.4 percent) are limited to specific applicants who have a special expertise and service. Programs in this category address gangs/violent offenders; community policing/police effectiveness; intermediate sanctions/user accountability; drug prevention; intensive prosecution and expeditious adjudication; money laundering/financial investigations; and information systems, statistics, and technology. Continuation programs (25.3 percent) are limited to applicants who have previously received at least 1 year of funding for a multi-year program.
