Grants

GRANT INFORMATION: As of 8/5/16

The two grants that have been used to obtain our contraband detection equipment over the last couple of years are the Edward J. Byrne JAG (Justice Agreement Grant) and the Stone Garden grant.

 

The Byrne JAG grant is usually available for a short period of time each year. We recommend checking periodically to catch it when it is active.

 

Tribal Homeland Security Grant Program (THSGP) - Geared towards Tribal law enforcement agencies or any tribe that operates a law enforcement agency. Grant is to help strengthen tribal nations against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks and other hazards.

 

Discretionary Funding – Thetr are several federal government agencies that have additional funding that is specifically allocated to local law enforcement agencies on a yearly basis. This funding is donated to those local agencies to be used for things such as equipment and overtime pay. Local agencies can receive discretionary funding via agencies like HIDTA, DEA, FBI, and Homeland Security Investigations amongst others.

 

There are grants through Domestic Highway Enforcement (DHE). DHE is a strategy that promotes collaboration from multiple departments to attack drug trafficking on highways all over the country. The focus of this is on highways where there is major trafficking of contraband. DHE goes hand in hand with HIDTA. Here is a link with more info:

We suggest using Google to find other grant sites at which to apply for contraband detection equipment. Since we are not a government or law enforcement agency, we do not have access to the grant websites.
