Press Release: Application for Edward Byrne Memorial FY 2019 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program
The Haywood County Sheriff’s Office will apply through the Edward
Byrne Memorial FY 2019 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program. Byrne
grants provide federal funding for programs defined and implemented at
the local level to meet specific local needs.
Grant funding will fund in-car cameras to be used in day to day
operations by the Sheriff’s Office.
This grant requires that the chief executive of an eligible unit of
local government or a local agency designated by the chief executive
must apply for and administer Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) funds. By
your designation, Haywood County Sheriff’s Office qualifies to request
and administer this grant. Funds will be administered by Richard
Brown, with the grant administered by Lt. Jamie Moore.
The process also requires that the local government make the grant
application available for review of the governing body before the
application is submitted to JAG. The application must be submitted by
23 August 2019.
The unit of local government (HCSO) must also provide assurance that
this application has been made available for public review and
comment. This has been done through a press release to local media
outlets and a posting on the Sheriff’s web page of the Haywood County
web site as well as the Sheriff’s official Facebook page.
