The Byrne/JAG Grant Program, administered in Broward County by the United Way of Broward County Commission on
Substance Abuse (UWBCCSA), is a partnership among federal, state, and local governments to create safer
communities. The Byrne/JAG Grant Program, created by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, places emphasis on drugrelated
crime, violent crime, and serious offenders, as well as multi-jurisdictional and interstate efforts to support
national drug control priorities.
The Byrne/JAG Grant Program falls under the jurisdiction of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Office
of Criminal Justice Grants which apportions the money to each county in the state. The distribution to the counties is
based on a combination of population and crime statistics.
Broward had received for a number of years, approximately $1 million dollars annually. Projects must comply with the
federally authorized program areas. They include a range of activities such as prevention, intervention, treatment,
enforcement, domestic violence, and equipment needs.
