Hurricane Criminal Justice
Infrastructure Recovery Funds

2007 Hurricane Tier One Katrina (HTOK) 


In May 2007, the United States Congress, recognizing the plight of the criminal justice agencies devastated in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf of Mexico, included an appropriation for their relief as part of H.R. 2206.  The provisions of this Act included $50 million for “local law enforcement initiatives in the Gulf of Mexico region related to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.”  In June 2007, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Office of Justice Programs (OJP) of the U. S. Department of Justice announced that Congress had awarded $24,579,509 to Louisiana through the Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) to provide for “local law enforcement initiatives” related to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  These funds are intended to assist the State in recovery of the area through the funding of the local law enforcement initiatives.

 Program Purpose Areas

The purpose of this relief funding is to provide criminal justice agencies with funds for the necessary expenses related to the direct or indirect consequences of Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf of Mexico in calendar year 2005.  These funds can be used for a wide variety of purposes including personnel, equipment, contractual, or other direct costs.
