Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $12,421,604)

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) proposes to allocate funds for Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program services for local and tribal units of government as well as state criminal justice agencies, to enhance initiatives in their jurisdiction. Funding will be allocated through subawards to address one or more of the nine program areas. FDLE’s JAG program goal is to enable local units of government to receive funding necessary to improve the criminal justice system.

FDLE issues all JAG subawards through a formula-driven allocation process, in two separate cycles. Florida’s JAG-Countywide (JAGC) program represents approximately 85% of Florida's total federal award and is subdivided into two parts - state share and local share. FDLE reserves up to 10% each year for administrative costs. Florida’s JAG-Direct (JAGD) program represents the remaining 15% of Florida's total federal award.
