Justice Assistance Grants (JAG) Criminal and Juvenile Justice Intervention Grants

​The Minnesota JAG Criminal and Juvenile Justice Intervention Grant seeks to improve public safety by supporting intervention activities for adults or juveniles who have had initial involvement and activities that will reduce further involvement in the criminal and juvenile justice systems.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit agencies, local units of government including cities, counties, townships, and tribal government. JAG requires that approximately 60 percent of funds be passed through to local units of government unless applicants submit signed waivers (see RFP for details.)
All applications must be submitted via e-grants and submitted by 4 p.m., Tuesday, May 28.

If You're a Crime Victim, Do You Know Your Rights?

There’s no doubt about it: Being the victim of a crime can be traumatic. Not only are you dealing with grief and loss in the wake of a crime perpetrated against you, it might also feel as if you suddenly have to be an expert on the criminal justice system. It can be daunting and discouraging.

Fortunately, the Crime Victim Justice Unit (CVJU) is in your corner. A part of the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs, the CVJU exists to make sure that, as a crime victim, you are treated appropriately and your statutory rights are upheld. Learn more in our blog.
