Frequently Asked Questions

Are we restricted in how Southwest Border Prosecution Initiative (SWBPI) funds may be used by the jurisdiction?

Generally, there are no federal restrictions on the use of these funds. Funds may be used for any lawful purpose. BJA encourages but does not require chief executive officers to utilize funds to directly support of prosecuting and detaining of criminal defendants that result from federal referrals and declinations.
