FY 2015 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program Local Solicitation Announcement
The Bureau of Justice Assistance recently announced an opening for local solicitation grant applications. The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is the primary source of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. The JAG Local Solicitation provides vital funding to support a range of programs and equipment for law enforcement.
The Puyallup Police Department will submit the 2015 application to focus on strengthening the response to violence in the community. The grant funding will enable the department to collaborate with local businesses in order to strengthen the communication and response in an active shooter situation. If awarded, Puyallup’s 2015 grant allocation will be $10,229 and will not require local matching funds.
