NIJ is seeking applicants for funding under the Solving Cold Cases With DNA Program. This program furthers the Department's mission by offering assistance to States and units of local government to identify, review, and investigate Uniform Crime Report Part 1 Violent Crime "cold cases" that have the potential to be solved through DNA analysis, and to locate and analyze biological evidence associated with these cases.


In fiscal 2020, all state and local forensic capacity enhancement programs previously administered by NIJ moved to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). Any future funding opportunities under this program will be released by BJA. Visit BJA.ojp.gov to learn more about this program and future opportunities.
