Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $16,175)
This program furthers the U.S. Department of Justice's mission by offering an opportunity for States with existing crime laboratories that conduct DNA analysis of convicted offender DNA samples to reduce their backlog of convicted offender DNA samples through in-house analysis and data review. These activities are critical to accelerating the analysis of convicted offender samples collected by States, in order to provide CODIS-compatible data for all 13 CODIS core STR loci for State and national DNA databases, so that law enforcement is provided with crucial investigative information in a timely manner.
