Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council
Notice of Available Grant Funding
Federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG)

The Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (KCJCC) establishes the guidelines for the Federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG).  The JAG program is authorized by federal law 34 U.S.C. §10151-10158.  The KCJCC and the federal JAG program guidelines establish eligibility criteria that must be met by all organizations that receive JAG funds.  Grant funds may be awarded to units of state and local government, Native American Tribes, and nonprofit, community, and faith-based organizations.  The primary use of JAG is to support the following purpose areas: (1) law enforcement programs, (2) prosecution and court programs, (3) prevention and education programs, (4) corrections and community corrections programs, (5) drug treatment and enforcement programs, (6) planning, evaluation and technology improvement programs, (7) crime victim and witness programs, and (8) mental health and related law enforcement and corrections programs.  Grant funds must be requested within one or more of the seven purpose areas.  Grant funds are available for the funding period of October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019.  This grant is competitive and there is a yearly application process with no guarantee of continued funding.  This grant opportunity is subject to funding from the United States Department of Justice and may be reduced or rescinded based on guidance or interpretation of grant terms and conditions made by the federal government, including but not limited to applicants’ compliance with 8 U.S.C. § 1373.

In distributing grant funds, priority will be given to applications that clearly support the objectives of the current Kansas Statewide Strategic Plan and to local government applicants who are not eligible to apply directly to the Federal Bureau of Justice Assistance for JAG funding.  A copy of the Strategic Plan, as well as a copy of the JAG solicitation, may be downloaded at http://www.grants.ks.gov/opportunities/edward-j-byrne-memorial-justice-assistance-grant-(jag).  The solicitation is also available on the Governor’s Grant Portal at https://www.kansas.gov/grants/index.do.

All grant applications must be submitted via the Governor’s Grant Portal by 11:59 p.m. October 2, 2018.  To quickly locate the grant in the grant portal, use ‘‘JAG’’ for the keyword in your search.  For more information, contact the Governor’s Grants Program at (785) 291-3205.
