NIJ seeks proposals for funding for the FY 2012 DNA Backlog Reduction Program.

This program provides funding to States and units of local government with existing crime laboratories that conduct DNA analysis to process, record, screen, and analyze forensic DNA and/or DNA database samples, and to increase the capacity of public forensic DNA and DNA database laboratories to process more DNA samples, thereby helping to reduce the number of forensic DNA and DNA database samples awaiting analysis.
Application Deadline: April 23, 2012 11:59 PM eastern time.
