The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA), the state administering agency for the federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG), is seeking public input on its federal fiscal year 2017 JAG application.
JAG allows state and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and improve the criminal justice system. JAG funds have supported government programs to enforce Illinois drug laws, decrease the likelihood of violent crime, and improve the criminal justice system and its outcomes.
JUSTICE ASSISTANCE GRANT PURPOSE AREAS AND PRIORITIES
JAG funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice in any of the following purpose areas:
In its application for these funds, ICJIA will submit a program narrative that includes a three-year strategic plan approved by the Authority Board last fall. The strategic plan will guide the use of JAG funds to address these priorities through 2018:
REQUEST FOR INPUT
