~Funding for Programs to Reduce Crime and Improve Public Safety~

TOPEKA—Governor Laura Kelly, on behalf of the Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (KCJCC), is pleased to announce the 2021 grant awards for the Federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program. The JAG funds are provided to criminal justice system partners to address crime and improve public safety. Specifically, the JAG awards made to local and state agencies fund programs designed to reduce crime, assist with equipment and technology needs, provide crime victim services, and prevention activities.

“My administration will continue to support investments in our state’s criminal justice system and public safety,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “These grant funds will go a long way in providing our law enforcement and criminal justice agencies with the resources they need to maintain a safe environment for Kansans.”

The KCJCC oversees the criminal justice federal funding made available to Kansas through the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The KCJCC membership is representative of the Governor, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Corrections, the Superintendent of the Kansas Highway Patrol, and the Director of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
