The Grants Management Division (GMD) receives approximately $120-125 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, Law Enforcement Service Fee, Violence Against Women Act, Victims of Crime Act, and others. Each competitive grant program has its own objectives, allowable uses of funding, matching, and eligibility requirements. GMD also adheres to specific policy priorities as set forth by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Please see the Subdirectory of Grant Programs for specific information.
