The Bureau of Justice Assistance is issuing this final rule to correct the address to which a state or local unit of government may submit applications for the Emergency Federal Law Enforcement Assistance Program. The purpose of this program is to provide assistance to an uncommon situation which is or threatens to escalate to serious or epidemic proportions and state or local resources are not sufficient to protect the lives and property of citizens, or to enforce the criminal law.
Currently, the state must submit the application directly to the Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice with one copy to the Director, Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. The Office of Justice Programs has moved to a different location in Washington, DC necessitating this correction to the regulation.
