Describes the steps used in the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) formula calculation process and presents summary results of the FY 2011 formula calculations. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 merged two grant programs to establish the JAG program; the Bureau of Justice Assistance administers this program and the Bureau of Justice Statistics calculates the formulas. Funds are distributed to states and localities based on resident population and violent crime data reported to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program. In total, approximately $368.3 million was allocated for the FY 2011 JAG awards. Approximately $237.1 million was distributed to the states, $8.9 million to the territories and the District of Columbia, and $122.3 million to local governments.
