BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

The Edward Byrne Memorial JAG Program is the primary provider of criminal justice funding to State and local jurisdictions. JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system. The established JAG list established by the Bureau of Justice Statistics indicates the amount for which each unit of government is eligible to apply.
