Current PGR Grant Opportunities

Grants Programs

Below is a listing of Federal Grant Programs for which municipal, county, and state agencies, as well as nonprofit agencies, might be eligible. Depending on the grant program, funding is made available to potential grantees on either a formula or competitive basis.

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program (42 U.S.C. 3751 (a)) is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions.  JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system, from multi-jurisdictional drug and gang task forces to crime prevention and domestic violence programs, courts, corrections, treatment, and justice information-sharing initiatives.

Established to streamline justice funding and grant administration, the JAG Program allows states, tribes, non-profit and faith-based organizations, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own local needs and conditions.  JAG blends the previous Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant (LLEBG) programs to provide agencies with the flexibility to prioritize and place justice funds where they are needed most.

The JAG formula includes a state allocation consisting of a minimum base allocation with the remaining amount determined on population and Part 1 violent crime statistic, and a direct allocation to units of local government.  Once the state allocation is calculated, 60 percent of the funding is awarded to the state and 40 percent to eligible units of local government.  State allocations also have a required variable pass through to units of local government, calculated by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) from each state’s crime expenditures.

JAG funds may be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, and operating.  Additionally, funds may be used for equipment, overtime, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice.

JAG Purpose Areas:
  • Law enforcement programs
  • Prosecution and court programs
  • Prevention and education programs
  • Corrections and community corrections programs
  • Drug treatment and enforcement programs
  • Planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs
  • Crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation)
  • Mental health programs and related law enforcement and corrections programs, including behavioral programs and crisis intervention teams

    The S.T.O.P. (Services – Training – Officers – Prosecutors) VAWA program supports communities in their efforts to develop and strengthen effective criminal justice strategies to address violent crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence, and the development and enhancement of victim services in cases involving these crimes.

    The 2013 Reauthorization of VAWA specifies that states must allocate at least 25 percent of the S.T.O.P. funds to law enforcement, 25 percent to prosecution, 5 percent to courts, 30 percent to nonprofit, non-governmental victim services (10% of which must be distributed to culturally specific community-based organizations). The remaining 15 percent may be allocated at the state’s discretion within the parameters of the Act.

    The Idaho STOP Implementation Plan: FFY 2022-2025 will guide the use of the STOP VAWA awards received by the State of Idaho for a four-year period.

    The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Program [34 U.S.C. 10421 et. seq.,],  assists states, tribal, and local governments to develop and implement substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs in state and local correctional and detention facilities and to create and maintain community-based aftercare services for offenders.  The RSAT Program seeks to increase access to evidence-based prevention and treatment, reduce overdose deaths, and support increased access to evidence-based substance use disorder treatment and recovery support services, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is the use of medication in combination with counseling and behavior therapies to treat incarcerated individuals.

    RSAT Funding Interest Form

    RSAT Funds are now on a three-year funding cycle, starting with Funding Year 2023 (CY24). However, if your state, tribal, or local government program meets or will meet the eligibility requirements for RSAT funding and wish to receive RSAT funds after January 1, 2024, please fill out the RSAT Funding Interest Form and email it to

    Funding Interest Form 

    Program Requirements

    RSAT funds may be used to implement three types of programs: residential, jail-based, and aftercare.  At least 10 percent of the total state allocation shall be made available to local correctional and detention facilities – provided such facilities exist – for either residential substance abuse treatment programs or jail-based substance use disorder treatment programs.

    Residential SUD treatment programs in prisons and juvenile detention centers must meet all of the following criteria:

    1. Engage individuals with SUD or co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders for a period of between 6 and 12 months.
    2. Require periodic/random drug testing of individuals while they are in the program and under community supervision.
    3. Establish a therapeutic community (i.e.,program participants are set apart from the general population).
    4. Provide aftercare services.

    Residential SUD treatment programs in jails must meet all of the following criteria:

    1. Engage individuals with SUD or co-occurring substance use and serious mental health disorders for at least 3 months.
    2. Require periodic/random drug testing of individuals while they are in the program and under community supervision.
    3. Make every effort to establish a therapeutic community.
    4. Provide aftercare services.

    Jail-based SUD treatment programs that initiate or continue evidence-based SUD treatment programs, including medication-assisted treatment, in pretrial populations and/or foster connections to SUD treatment in the community upon pretrial release. Programs supporting pre-trial populations do not need to meet above criteria for jail-based residential SUD treatment programs.

    Aftercare services include case management and the full continuum of recovery and aftercare services to support people released from a residential SUD treatment program, which may include human service and rehabilitation programs such as education and job training, parole supervision, recovery or transitional housing, peer support programs, and other recovery support services.

    Sexual Assault Services Formula Grant Program (SASP) is the first federal funding stream solely dedicated to the provision of direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault. The SASP Formula Grant Program directs grant dollars to states and territories to assist them in supporting rape crisis centers and other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations or tribal programs that provide services, direct intervention, and related assistance to victims of sexual assault.  Funds provided through SASP are designed to supplement other funding sources directed at addressing sexual assault on the state and territorial level.

    Idaho’s SASP funding provides funds for intervention, advocacy, accompaniment, support services and related assistance for adult, youth, and child victims of sexual assault, family and household members of victims and those collaterally affected by the sexual assault.
