Grants to Nevada government agencies and tribes for a range of initiatives to reduce drug trafficking and violent crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations can take several weeks. Funding is intended to strengthen the criminal justice system by providing additional resources and facilitating inter-agency communication.

OCJA’s mission is to assist stakeholders with funding to facilitate criminal justice solutions designed to reduce drug and violent crime for safer Nevada communities. With the FY21 JAG funding OCJA intends to provide JAG grant resources to projects with a high probability of improving the performance of the criminal justice system and increase Nevada’s capacity to prevent and reduce violent crime, illegal drug sales and distribution, gang activity and human trafficking. Projects funded with the JAG program will enhance the rule of law by strengthening court programs, prosecution, defense, reentry programs, and system improvements for criminal justice with technology across the state. OCJA proposes to use JAG grant funds for those projects that address issues most critical to Nevada’s criminal justice system. 

JAG funds awarded under this FY 2021 solicitation may be used to:

  • Support multijurisdictional task force programs that integrate Federal, State, and local drug law enforcement agencies and prosecutors for the purpose of enhancing interagency coordination, intelligence, and facilitating multijurisdictional investigations;
  • Programs designed to target the domestic sources of controlled and illegal substances, such as precursor chemicals, diverted pharmaceuticals, clandestine laboratories, and cannabis cultivations and to remove any hazardous substance or pollutant or contaminant associated with the illegal manufacture of amphetamine or methamphetamine;
  • Purchase fentanyl detection equipment and training for law enforcement safety, as well as naloxone distribution.
  • Purchase drug detection canines to combat the rise of drug trafficking, including that of methamphetamines.
  • Improving the operational effectiveness of the court process, by expanding prosecutorial, defender and judicial resources, and implementing court delay reduction programs; 

Allowable Expenses: 

  • Project personnel salaries and benefits, including overtime pay.
  • Equipment necessary for implementation of the program.
  • Building rental.
  • Project personnel travel/training.
  • Audits.
  • Supplies and operating expenses directly related to project operation.
  • Professional services (including contractors and consultants). Costs must fall within federally approved policy - $650.00 per day or $81.25 per hour.
  • Tips for Rideshare or Taxi with receipt.

For additional information on permissible use of funds, see Application, in Supporting Documents, below.
