Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $500,000)

Through the Edward Byrne Memorial Congressionally Recommended Awards program, the Office of Justice Programs helps communities improve the capacity of local justice systems and supports training and technical assistance programs and other efforts that strategically target local needs. This program is authorized to organizations identified in the Text and Joint Explanatory Statement, Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009.

This project will reduce Internet-initiated crime against youth by increasing the number of parents and other adults who can better protect children from predators and other forms of online exploitation by expanding and building upon Enough Is Enough's (EIE) Internet Safety 101 Pilot Program elements. The program will provide the adult community with information needed to protect children online.
