The JAG Program is a blend of the previous Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant Programs. This program allows states, tribes and local governments to support a broad range of activities. These activities are aimed at preventing and controlling crime and drug abuse and improving the criminal justice systems based on local needs and conditions.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Office of Criminal Justice Grants, administers the JAG Program within the State of Florida. Every fiscal year they allocate a sum of money to each county, including the County of Volusia.
The county government then awards the funds to local governments and non-profit organizations within its jurisdiction. This distribution is based on the criteria contained in the grant regulations and priorities determined by the Children and Families Advisory Board (CFAB).
The CFAB makes recommendations of priority and funding allocations for the JAG Program to the Volusia County Council for approval. Applicants must provide services that meet one of the Federal Purpose Areas listed below.
Federal Purpose Areas
Area 1 - Law enforcement programs
Area 2 - Prosecution and court programs
Area 3 - Prevention and education programs
Area 4 - Corrections and community corrections programs
Area 5 - Drug treatment and enforcement programs
Area 6 - Planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs
Area 7 - Crime victim and witness programs
