The JAG program, specifically authorized under 34 U.S.C. §§ 10151 – 10158, is the leading source of federal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. The JAG Program provides states, tribes, and local governments with critical funding necessary to support a range of program areas including law enforcement, prosecution, indigent defense, courts, crime prevention and education, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, planning, evaluation, technology improvement, and crime victim and witness initiatives and mental health programs and related law enforcement and corrections programs, including behavioral programs and crisis intervention teams.
Since 2009, as part of its commitment to help member schools keep dollars in the classroom, New Jersey Schools Insurance Group (NJSIG) awarded their seven sub-funds throughout the state millions of dollars in Safety Grants. NJSIG’s Safety Grant program provides funding to members to invest in proactive risk management and safety related project improvements. The goal is to develop a strong safety culture in New Jersey school communities and help reduce costs thereby keeping dollars in the classroom.
