Looking at the Data: How States Invest Byrne JAG

NCJA has developed a Fact Sheet on how the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant (Byrne JAG) program is invested nationally. Data for this fact sheet was gathered through NCJA’s biennial data collection, which asks State Administering Agencies (SAAs) how they spent the formula portion of their Byrne JAG money in a particular federal fiscal year. For the most recent data collection in federal fiscal year 2020, JAG allocation data was received through a Survey Monkey link. Additionally, NCJA staff conducted interviews with each state, with the overall intention of creating a document that best describes the story of Byrne JAG and the type and wide variety of projects it can fund.
