New Solicitation: Research and Development in Forensic Science for Criminal Justice Purposes, Fiscal Year 2019

With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for basic or applied research and development projects. An NIJ forensic science research and development grant supports a discrete, specified, circumscribed project that will:
1. Increase the body of knowledge to guide and inform forensic science policy and practice, or
2. Lead to the production of useful material(s), device(s), system(s), or method(s) that have the potential for forensic application.
The intent of this program is to direct the findings of basic scientific research; foster research and development in broader scientific fields applicable to forensic science; and support ongoing forensic science research toward the development of highly-discriminating, accurate, reliable, cost-effective, and rapid methods for the identification, analysis, and interpretation of physical evidence for criminal justice purposes.
All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on April 11, 2019.
