This is a request for the City Commission to authorize the Gainesville Police Department to submit an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant FY2019 Local Solicitation application and to accept and execute the grant if awarded.

 

Explanation

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistant Grant is a direct award based on JAG formula (violent crime and population).  This program furthers the Department’s mission by assisting local efforts to prevent or reduce crime and violence.  The City of Gainesville Police Department is eligible for an award of $66,126.00.  This money may be used to provide additional personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, training, technical assistance and information systems for criminal justice.  The grant application is due August 23, 2019.  This year the City and County are required to apply for the funds jointly as a disparate jurisdiction.  The City will be applying for the funds and subgranting the County portion back to the County through an interlocal agreement.

Recommendation:

The City Commission 1) authorize the City Manager to apply for, and to accept and execute the grant award and any other necessary documents (interlocal agreement with Alachua County), subject to review by the City Attorney as to form and legality; and 2) approve the expenditures as outlined in the approved grant award.
