The federal JAG program regulations require the state's JAG administrative agency, OPM, to allocate a portion of the JAG Formula award to local governments via the following two funding components:
Local Variable Pass-Through (LVPT) Funds
The JAG Local Variable Pass-Through (LVPT) grant is a component of the Connecticut JAG Formula grant program. The program is funded through a federal formula grant administered by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The program is authorized under 42 U.S.C. §3751(a). (CFDA #16.738) (CFDA Title: Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program).
Less Than 10K Local (LT10K) Funds
The LT10K funds are a component of the state's JAG Formula grant; federal program regulations require the SAA to allocate funds for very small-size units of local government, referred to as “less-than-$10,000 jurisdictions” or “less than 10K” (LT10K). USDOJ determines the amount of “less than 10K” funds available for each state. The State must sub-award the LT10K funds to State police departments that provide criminal justice services to the “less-than-$10,000 jurisdictions” within the State and/or sub-award the funds to such jurisdictions.
