The Forensic Casework DNA Backlog Reduction Program provides formula funding to State and local governments with existing crime laboratories that conduct DNA analysis. Funds are to be used by the crime laboratories to identify and test backlogged forensic DNA casework samples, whether in accredited or certified government-owned laboratories or through accredited or certified fee-for-service vendors. Funding is allocated based on crime statistics (number of sexual assaults and homicides reported to the FBI).
