The recovery project for today is a little complex because of the way they have it listed on the recovery website. This one is listed as part of the TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION. The basic description is thus.
Grants program which carries out a multi-faceted response to crime and victimization in Tennessee by supporting the improvement of the infrastructure of the state's criminal justice system.The details for this project need a little extra explaining.
The projects webpage lists a gigantic number for jobs created and monies invested.
Award Number 2009-SU-B9-000230 million and over 200 jobs created!!! That larger then the town budget. Of course the web page is for the entire project state wise. I had to go back to the original Recovery Map to get the basic information for the local part of the statewide project.

It seems out of the larger project of 30 million that Smyrna received $56,000 and has no jobs created. This recovery project seems inline with yesterdays as one to bolster existing projects and not a job creating project.
This project is part of the Bryne Jag program. Since I did not know what that was, I thought I would find out and share the information with you.
The JAG Program, administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), is the leading source of federal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. The JAG Program provides states, tribes, and local governments with critical funding necessary to support a range of program areas including law enforcement, prosecution and court, prevention and education, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, planning, evaluation, and technology improvement, and crime victim and witness initiatives.Well that's the program for today. An investment in the local effort to assist in fighting crime.
Stay tuned for tomorrows recovery program.
