Volusia County is anticipating an award of $144,648 from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Countywide Program under Chapter 11D-9 of the Florida Administrative Code.

 

According to a release, the grant, provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will help with countywide program activities for Fiscal Year 20/21.

 

Funds will be available on a competitive basis between Volusia County nonprofit organizations and local cities that do not receive a direct allocation of JAG funding annually.

 

Eligible federal purpose areas include law enforcement; prosecution and court; prevention and education; corrections and community corrections; drug treatment and enforcement; planning, evaluation, and technology improvement; crime victim and witness programs; and mental health and related law enforcement and corrections programs.

 

To request an application, contact Edina Chester at echester@volusia.org or 386-736-5955, ext. 12908. Applications will be accepted until noon on Tuesday, December 22. Detailed instructions are included in the application.

 

The Children and Families Advisory Board will review and score applications, making funding recommendations. Final approval for funding will be made by the Volusia County Council.
