Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $262,500)
This program furthers the Department's mission by offering an opportunity for States with existing laboratories that conduct DNA analysis of convicted offender and/or arrestee DNA samples ("DNA database samples") to reduce their backlog of such samples through in-house analysis or by sending samples to accredited fee-for-service laboratories for analysis. Agencies may also apply for assistance with data review of backlogged DNA profiles awaiting CODIS entry. These activities are critical to accelerating the analysis of DNA database samples collected by States in order to provide timely Combined DNA Index System (CODIS)-compatible data for all 13 CODIS core short tandem repeat (STR) loci for State and national DNA databases.
