Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, Native American tribes, and units of state and local government for programs that reduce and prevent crime.

  • Prevention and education programs;
  • Corrections and community corrections programs;

Funding Priorities

The KCJCC aims to reduce recidivism, improve officer safety, serve victims of crime, and improve information technology. Applicants should review the Strategic Plan in its entirety and consider how the proposed JAG project fits into the described KCJCC priorities. Applications clearly supporting the priorities set forth in the Strategic Plan will take precedence to the extent feasible when subgrant awards are determined.

The Strategic Plan identifies three priority programs.

  1. Mental Health:
    • Evaluation/assessment of mental disorders, substance abuse disorders, and co-occurring disorders;
    • Crisis intervention team training and support; and
    • Residential inpatient behavioral health treatment programs.
  2. Law Enforcement:
    • Crisis intervention/mental health/suicide prevention;
    • Drug enforcement; and
    • Workforce/hire and retain qualified staff.
