Grants Management Branch
The Grants Management Branch (GMB) receives approximately $15-18 million annually from various state and federal grant programs. These funds are disbursed to state and local criminal justice agencies and not-for-profit service providers through grant programs such as the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants (JAG), Law Enforcement Service Fee (LSF), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), and others. Each competitive grant program has its own objectives, allowable uses of funding, matching, and eligibility requirements. GMB also adheres to specific policy priorities as set forth by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Please see the Subdirectory of Grant Programs for specific information.
||SPECIAL FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT

The Kentucky State Corrections Commission continues to favor certain areas of concentration they wish to see for the FY 2015 Grants. These areas include: Evidence Based Programs; Mental Health Courts; Home Incarceration Programs (HIP) for both felony and misdemeanors; and drug testing kits for those on HIP. Other types of grants will be considered, but those mentioned above will be given priority. The ability to demonstrate how the grant will reduce jail overcrowding will strongly be considered in the awarding of grant funding.
