Criminal justice agencies across Michigan will receive $6.4 million for anti-drug and crime-fighting efforts.

Gov. Rick Snyder on Monday announced the federal grants.

The grants focus on drug task forces, drug courts and data-driven approaches to crime and traffic safety, community policing and prosecution focused on juveniles, and prosecutions in high-crime cities.

Agencies receiving the grants must spend the awards by Sept. 30, 2013.

Detroit police received $100,000 for a youth intervention and prevention program in the Cody High School neighborhood. Activities will include sports, mentoring and life skills education.

Michigan State Police in the Upper Peninsula received more than $248,000 to assist task forces targeting drug trafficking.
