Justice Assistance Grants Program

The federal JAG program provides seed money to the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet based on population and crime rates.

As the state recipient of these funds, Justice and Public Safety Cabinet conducts a competitive application cycle on an annual basis.

Eligible applicants are state and local government agencies and nonprofit entities seeking critical funding necessary to support a wide range of program areas including law enforcement, prosecution, indigent defense, courts, crime prevention and education, corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, planning, evaluation, technology improvement, and crime victim and witness initiatives and mental health programs and related law enforcement and corrections programs, including behavioral programs and crisis intervention teams.
