OPM: Local Pass-Through JAG
Program Jag

Local Pass-Through JAG


Connecticut JAG Formula Grant for Local Governments

Local Variable Pass-Through (LVPT) Funds

Less Than 10K Local (LT10K) Funds


The federal JAG program regulations require the state's JAG administrative agency, OPM, to allocate a portion of the JAG Formula award to local governments via the following two funding components:

 

 

Local Variable Pass-Through (LVPT) Funds

The JAG Local Variable Pass-Through (LVPT) grant is a component of the Connecticut JAG Formula grant program The program is funded through a federal formula grant administered by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance.  The program is authorized under 42 U.S.C. §3751(a). (CFDA #16.738) (CFDA Title:  Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program).


Less Than 10K Local (LT10K) Funds

The LT10K funds are a component of the state's JAG Formula grant; federal program regulations require the SAA to allocate funds for very small-size units of local government, referred to as “less-than-$10,000 jurisdictions” or “less than 10K” (LT10K).  USDOJ determines the amount of “less than 10K” funds available for each state.  The State must sub-award the LT10K funds to State police departments that provide criminal justice services to the “less-than-$10,000 jurisdictions” within the State and/or sub-award the funds to such jurisdictions.


Future Funding for Local Governments

The federal program requires OPM, as the SAA, to engage in  a strategic planning process to guide the expenditure of JAG funds.  As part of the annual federal grant application process, the SAA must submit a cohesive plan describing priorities, strategies and timeline for the allocating the local-level (LVPT and LT10K) JAG funds as well as the state agency funding.  Future funding will be distributed based on the priorities and issues identified in the FY2017 JAG Plan.
