Grants to USA and Territories state and local governmental agencies and tribal governments to address unsolved criminal cases. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for activities to resolve unsolved violent cases and to decrease the number of violent crime cold cases awaiting prosecution.
Through this program, BJA will provide grant funding to support the prosecution of violent crime cold cases, where DNA from a suspect has been identified (suspect(s) may be known or unknown). Provided that DNA attributed to a known or unknown suspect has been identified, funding support includes investigative activities and crime and forensic analyses that could lead to prosecuting violent crime cold cases, and decreasing the number of violent crime cold cases awaiting prosecution.
All expenditures under this program must relate directly to violent crime cold cases where suspect DNA has been identified, and for activities that may lead to the prosecution of such violent crime cold cases. Federal funds must be used to supplement existing State and local funds for program activities and must not supplant those funds that have been appropriated for the same purpose.
