    OCJA’s mission is to assist stakeholders with funding to facilitate criminal justice solutions designed to reduce drug and violent crime for safer Nevada communities. With the FY21 JAG funding OCJA intends to provide JAG grant resources to projects with a high probability of improving the performance of the criminal justice system and increase Nevada’s capacity to prevent and reduce violent crime, illegal drug sales and distribution, gang activity and human trafficking. Projects funded with the JAG program will enhance the rule of law by strengthening court programs, prosecution, defense, reentry programs, and system improvements for criminal justice with technology across the state. OCJA proposes to use JAG grant funds for those projects that address issues most critical to Nevada’s criminal justice system.
