FY17 Byrne JAG Extension: Recently, a preliminary injunction was issued relating to the "section 1373," "notice," and "access" award conditions that are contained in FY 2017 Byrne JAG awards. As a result, the Department is currently enjoined from enforcing those award conditions in FY 2017 Byrne JAG awards made to members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. In order to afford the Department time to evaluate its options and provide guidance regarding that preliminary injunction, the Department is extending the deadline to accept FY 2017 Byrne JAG awards to October 5, 2018. This extension applies to all recipients of FY 2017 Byrne JAG award documents, whether or not they are covered under the terms of the preliminary injunction (as members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors).

Special Notice Re: FY17 Byrne JAG award conditions 52-56: At present, DOJ's authority to require compliance with Award Conditions 52 through 56 in FY 2017 JAG awards to members of the United States Conference of Mayors is the subject of pending litigation, including a preliminary injunction. Accordingly (and consonant with Award Condition 1), DOJ has determined that, at this time, it will not use or enforce those conditions in FY 2017 JAG awards to such members. If the posture of the pending litigation changes (or if the pending litigation is resolved) in a manner that would permit DOJ to use or enforce Award Conditions 52 through 56 in the FY 2017 JAG awards to such members, then DOJ will provide those recipients of FY 2017 JAG awards that are such members with specific, formal, written notice of DOJ's intent to use or enforce those conditions following the notice.
