Grant Notices

Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) FY 2017 Program: Local Solicitation

Established to streamline justice funding and grant administration, the JAG program allows states, tribes and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their local needs and conditions. JAG blends the previous Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant (LLEBG) programs to provide agencies with the flexibility to prioritize and place justice funds where they are needed most. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) calculates, for each state and territory, a minimum base allocation which, based on the statutory JAG formula, can be enhanced by (1) the state’s share of the national population and (2) the state’s share of the country’s Part 1 violent crime statistics. Once the state funding is calculated, 60 percent of the allocation is awarded to the state and 40 percent to eligible units of local government.


The City of Reno, City of Sparks and Washoe County law enforcement agencies are eligible for $131,170 in funding under the 2017 formula JAG program. Grant expires Sept 30, 2020.


These agencies have been designated as a disparate jurisdiction and have agreed to share the award as required under the grant. The City of Reno will be acting as fiscal agent for the group and all monies must be applied to law enforcement uses. The joint application is due September 5, 2017. As with past JAG awards, the agencies use these monies for law enforcement equipment, services and training. The new Interlocal Agreement between the three agencies will be going in from of the City Council and County Commission meetings as follows: Sparks City Council - August 28, Reno City Council - September 13, and Washoe County Board of Commission September 26.


The Reno Police Department will use the monies for officer safety training and equipment. The Sparks Police Department will use theirs towards the purchase of traffic accident scanning equipment. Washoe County will use the monies towards officer safety equipment, enforcement overtime, and training.
