Deadline Extended for Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Grants Program

Justice DeptNIJ is seeking proposals for the Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Grants Program, which awards grants to States and units of local government to help improve the quality and timeliness of forensic science and medical examiner/coroner’s office services. Among other things, funds may be used to eliminate a backlog in the analysis of forensic evidence and to train and employ forensic laboratory personnel, as needed, to eliminate such a backlog. State Administering Agencies (SAAs) may apply for both “base” (formula) and competitive funds. Units of local government may apply for competitive funds.
The deadline for applications under this funding opportunity has been extended to April 22.
