FY 2017 Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence-Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting Program (SAFE-ITR)

FY 2017 Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence-Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting Program (SAFE-ITR) – Eligible applicants are States, units of local government, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) that collect, store, maintain, and/or send forensic DNA evidence to an existing and accredited crime laboratory that complies with the DNA Quality Assurance Standards and participates in the National DNA Index System (NDIS). NIJ seeks applications from eligible States, units of local government, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) that will inventory, track, and report the status of SAKs, in keeping with the purposes of certain provisions of Title X of Public Law 113-4, the Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence Reporting (SAFER) Act of 2013. Since multiple grant programs for testing evidence related to sexual assault are offered through the Office of Justice Programs, including the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and NIJ, funding from this program will not be made available for testing evidence. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on April 28, 2017.
