(FY 2015) Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG)

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is making available federal funds for grants to support new projects that implement evidence based practices in these areas:

  1. Law Enforcement Programs;
  2. Prevention and Education Programs.

Funds for these grants come from money allocated to Virginia by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program.

Grants will be awarded through a two-phase process: a Concept Paper phase (Phase I) and an Invited Applicant phase (Phase II). The process is described in detail below.
